Speaking of which, how real is RoundUp's DB backend?  Does it use
MySQL?  *Could* it use MySQL?  *Should* it use MySQL?  When this idea
first came up, Andy Robinson asserted that it should, basically for
the reason that David states above; I'm neutral but I certainly see
the advantage of being able to run SQL(-ish) queries against the
database (this helps for the SF tracker too).
