Don't get me wrong - I need it as well.
I just don't want to start with rows and columns and having to think
about my REBOL data within the confines of a RDBMS. I am a database
developer by day and a reboler by night but I know REBOL is capable
of a very different kind of database.

I too have thought about it and can easily say either you or Gabriele
could write one in REBOL better than I. Most on this list could I believe. :-)

Small and flexible are more important to me than fast.

I don't mind some complexity as long as the design is built to manage
most of it internally.
Just my opinons mind you. If a RDBMS is what Gabriele needs and
wants to build I will be glad to help in whatever ways I can. I just want to
open up the discussion a bit in other directions to see if there is any
