No, I'd just like to see if I have some different ideas that will work
better, without getting into a mindset of, "well, other people did it this
way, so I better do it this way too..." I may well end up doing things the
same way, or incorporating other ideas, or deciding the whole thing's
pointless. It's an experiment. Research is what you're doing when you
don't know what you're doing. Plus, the actual CORBA DB API would be
something that doesn't really exist yet: A universal (or close to it)
database API.
