If someone gives the scheduler query to Dr. Hipp (who heads up the  
SQLite project) he might be able to tweak SQLite to run it more  
efficiently than out of the box - or at least give some pointers on  
how to accomplish that. I fell in love with SQLite when my company  
started using it. It's very fast for small databases and embedded  
application but admittedly doesn't scale as well as MySQL. However,  
it has the advantage of being completely free so you can change it to  
suit your needs.
