The main motivation for the switch was (another step in) getting rid of
java (at least for me personally it is, and AFAICS for most other people
too), and not the bundling of a db. And there appear to be solutions to
allow reliable use of external firebird with various ICUs (see mails
from Lionel/Michael) -- so either way firebird still makes the most
sense to me.
