I can't believe your last statement about the internal db.
The big advantage in using of a db is to access the data from any
applications either to read or to add info in a uniq place and not to
create another db for any application.
Overthe past several years, I read lots of mails and recipes about
effort and success in implementing/using interfaces to postgres/mysql.
