Please, if anyone is going to use a DBMS with a given software package,
then, at least, please build a back-end on the software package and
provide interfaces such that one can simply use their favourite DBMS with
it (for example, I would vastly prefer to use MySQL instead as I already
use it for a lot of my work and would rather not duplicate things by
installing yet another DBMS!)

Pah, signatures suck.
