I do a _lot_ of SQL (ask Richard, he gets to hear me swear about it at 
work), but I'm not hung up on it. I don't know that it's a showstopper. 
Note that initially, at least, it would be far easier to work with and 
modify a hyperdb-based schema til it's "right", then, if performance/
reporting/whatever needed it, move to a relational backend.
