Now :) (exams just finished). I'm working on getting the internal
firebird working at the moment (see above) since at the moment that
breaks my build (If I've understood correctly then at the moment this
works only with an external firebird?). (I've managed to fix the build
breaking when firebird is disabled so far, that's stuck in my git-stash
for the moment though.) If no-one else is currently doing this I could
concentrate on the building/integration of firebird within LO? (Once I
have it working on Linux there'll probably be more fun to have with
getting it to cooperate with Windows/Mac.)

W.r.t. migration -- I assume that ultimately we'd want a C++ parser that
can convert an HSQLDB database into any other database? (I've started
some light digging through the HSQLDB code to see how it works / how to
parse their file format.)
