There was some effort a while back to support multiple database 
backends, but I don't think there is really a big desire to support this 
anymore due to the large amount of mysql'isms in the code.

Even without an embedded database clients could still talk mythprotocol 
tho'. I think myself and the other devs like the ability to peak at the 
database with a normal db client app, so if things do ever go embedded, 
it would be very nice to keep this kind of access.
