So all your discussion about C++ , GTK this and that would not change if
you were planning to drive a database engine with a lot of relationships
defined by a database structure as opposed to hard coding all data
relationships.  Or maybe you are planning to but just haven't said so in
any of the emails that I read.  Or maybe all of your code modules have
such clean, well structured input and output interfaces that they can be
used either way.

Tell me that change-notification, client-side caching, and cache
coherency occupy such a large part of your development time that overall
program structure is immaterial.

I thought that knowing whether or not this is a goal might be an
opportunity to reduce the development time since you already have a good
start on database development.
