I'm really in favor of an SQL back end. In particular, I would like to
investigate the viability of running Subversion on a replicated DB
setup. FrontBase is my commercial RDBMS of choice (almost complete
SQL92 compliance, blazing speed, and awesome tech support).

I may be able to help with such an undertaking, depending on how sales
do of my next product (scheduled to ship in less than two weeks). I'm
all for killing off the BDB back end.

If we make an SQL back end, SQLite would also be an option for people
who didn't want to run a DB server.
