I'll take a look at that. It might be a good idea to make it
modular, if
it isn't already modular[0], so that people could create
"plugins" that
work with other databases. Personally, I'm going to see how
much work is
involved in porting the code to MySQL, since I don't use Postgres.

If "other databases" include Oracle 8i, I might be interested. Might as well
put it on a production-ready DBMS.
