SQL Support

From: Lester Caine <lester_at_lsces.co.uk>

I keep hitting my head against the limitations of CVS and have been
pointed in the direction of Subversion, but the major limitation here
seems to be reliance on Berkeley DB as a database engine. Since I am
more than happy with Firebird ( having been previously an Interbase user
since the early 90's) I don't want to introduce another engine to support.

Is any progress being made on SQL support, or am I restricted to FSFS
for the time being?

How 'integrated' is the Berkeley DB API - would it be that difficult to
switch to another engine with - as I see it - all of Berkeleys
capabilities and more ( we run Win98SE slave databases on many 24/7
sites ;) )

Having played with many systems over the last 25 years - I don't mind
getting my hands dirty but some expert input would be appreciated before
I invest too much time digging in the guts ;)

(p.s. I now run Eclipse exclusively as an IDE for new work so am looking
at a client interface as tidy as CVS on that but with capability to
manage the binary files and directory structure :) )
