Subversion Newbie thoughts: Database Backend, SQL, and the style?

Hi folks. I'm just starting to take a look at Subversion. So far the
following questions have popped up into my head.

I hope I'm not stepping into a dangerous area regarding those questions?

1) SQL backend? There has been talk about an SQL backend for some years
now (according to the mailing lists at tigris...). For those that don't
want to install a fully fledged SQL database server, have the SubVersion
people thought about "SQLite"?
(Or, what about a "generic" SQL backend, where you can plug in your SQL
server of choice? For example the "dbi" project.)

(When one reads the FAQ for SubVersion, the amount of space allocated to
running and maintaining the Berkeley Database is ... worrysome.)

2) The "HACKING.TXT" file, in the distribution.... In that file, you
specify the indent style to use... Eh... Why on earth did you
choose the GNU style?

peace and cheers,
