Funny, *I* thought I had seen people make the point that a database
engine which randomly corrupts it's tables being used as underpinning
for an appliance wasn't, perhaps, the best idea.

Does someone think that this is *not* a sufficiently compelling answer?

If not that, I'm sure that some of the people who want to bundle boxes
commercially will be interested in funding such work, since it's likely
that licensing issues will be important to them.
