hmm, yes it does. strange. would swear that it didn't yesterday ;-)

but the data doesn't have to come from a mysql-database (of course, now that's 
the only way...). i think the interface to the backend shouldn't be changed 
when you switch for example to a xml-file or postgresql... this way all the 
data-stuff has to be implemented into the frontend, and everytime you switch 
to a new data-source the communication between frond/back changes (sort of, 
i'm counting the data-storage as backend). when the backend would do all this 
you could switch data-sources in the backend and leave the client as-is. 
maybe there will be frontends for windows or who-knows-what... all these had 
to be changed! so i guess it would make sense to let the server do all the 
data-stuff and just deliver it to the client (frontend).
