I'll use MySQL when I'll need these features; but if I'm writing something like an address book, but complicated enough to require a relational db, I want to use something like dbms.r.

I still think a small REBOL dbms can be useful. I've been using MySQL a lot, and I'm not going to abandon it... but it's not always the best solution IMHO.
