Well, it seems that PostgreSQL has the concept of pluggable back-end
languages although only Tcl and Perl have been implemented yet. For
this sort of projects, I'd recommend PostgreSQL over MySQL: PG is a
real RDBMS and is object-relational (so you can do subclassing etcetera
in the database instead of in some O/R mapping layer). MySQL is fun
for storing user accounts and cookies behind websites, but not for
serious data management.
