I'm more interested in helping programmers write applications
by providing a simple way to map objects (such as GObjects)
to the GUI above them, and the DB (if any) below.
But yes, there's potential overlap with libstorage & espcially
with the idea that "Storage objects are "alive", not inert buffers"
which is more or less what I'm shooting for. I'll see if I can
dial up seth and compare notes.
