Wouldn't it be pretty to think so?

Alas, both MySQL's interface and it's internal behaviour are between 2
and 2 orders of magnitude more complicated than those of ffmpeg;
there's very rarely *reason* to want to twiddle with ffmpeg's
internals, while that definitely not the case with the DBMS.

I too would like to see them abstract it enough that I could put it
overtop a *real* DBMS, but I've given up thinking it will happen; just
phrasing it that way pisses Isaac off*.
