Oracle does this, by the way. There is something rather close to
cleartext which stores SQL statements. Apparently, some DBAs are quite
used to it because they often have to consult it to hush up users
errors. 8-)

I disagree. Most databases offer this functionality. It's required for
some forms of backup. Even Subversion supports it (but of course not
with plain-text data).
