I think finding an embedded sql system would be a great approach,
provided the database is portable.  I think the overhead of setting up
a SQL server is greater than many users want to have, but if we can
get the benefits of a database by using an embedded system (which
would hide from the user the fact that SQL is being used), that would
be ideal.  The user still sees a "file" but we're using SQL internally.

So, any good pointers to embedded SQL systems?
