Given that I want to write a MultiValue (NoSQL) database for LO from
scratch, what happens then? SQL is not the preferred interface :-)

But I was thinking a bit along those lines, and actually having a
database as part of the Document Foundation would be nice, but it
wouldn't really fit as part of a monolithic office.

NB - my idea is what I *want* to do. It seems a bit pie-in-the-sky at
the moment :-( Michael knows my personal situation which does rather get
in the way a lot :-(

However, if anybody wants to muck in and help, I've got the bulk of the
design laid out in my head - I just need a bit of help to get started,
and lots of time (which gets taken away from me at the drop of a hat :-(
