You might like some of the ideas here:

However, don't get the impression that there are Perl bindings or Java methods 
available - the most we'll have even with G2 is generic XML:

PLEASE don't start that thread again!!!

GnuCash isn't a database, it doesn't have a database but it can and will 
continue to use databases for storage as we see fit. The explanation took up 
most of that month, we really don't want to go back there!

It's not as easy as you think to separate the data from the logic without 
losing all the meaning of the data.
