	Wouldn't we eventually need a general-purpose relational (not
SQL!) DB as the basis of the OS?

	Gnome is about to get Storage.  The installer will have a DB.
A sane relational (as in Date and Darwen's D) lightweight, extensible
DBMS engine could be there from the installer on and then be used by
Gnome Storage, email software, etc.
