Note that it's not "the SQL backend", it is "the Postgres backend".  I
think the current Postgres backend is a little too heavyweight for the
average user.  I want something more lightweight, but I want to
encourage the use of a SQL-based system.

My proposal is to create an "embedded mysql backend" and then make
that the default.  Over time I'd like to remove the XML export
capability.  Obviously we'll need to retain the XML import capability.
