Is SQLite a relational db? In which case it's no interest to me ... :-)
As for other nosql dbs, the reason I would go down the Pick route is it
is the database technology I understand. And unfortunately I do not know
of a Pick database under a Free licence :-( which is a good reason for
wanting to write one :-)
If you come across a Pick DB called OpenQM I would advise you not to
touch it with a bargepole unless your sole purpose is playing/personal
use :-( Shame, as it's actually a very nice product.
If anybody else has any ideas, don't wait on me!!!
