       Are you willing to discuss the
       corrections implied by this?

Sure. Please note that Sean got some facts about arch wrong.

So far, the disaster recovery point clearly needs to be fixed and some
other points need to be, at least, clarified. I'm listening.

        I find it bizzare that "uses a database" would be considered a
        universally negative point by Tom, for example.

It's simpler to implement, administer, write other tools for, inspect,

When choosing betwen a relational, hash table, object or file system
storage model, "file system" should always be the default. When you
start needing to process a gazillion transactions per second, or to
rapidly page in objects upon access, or keep lots of complex indexes
-- then those other storage systems show their strengths and are worth
giving up the convenience of a file system. Even that trade-off will
become less clear as file systems continue to mature and acquire
better semantics.
