I basically agree but this needs to be balanced with promoting good ASF 
Basing our samples on ASF libraries and tools helps promote them.

Me, I'd be +1 if someone wanted to switch to Derby for the DB samples, 
assuming this person does the work (as there is nothing to fix in 
regarding the HSQLDB samples AFAIK).

We'd just tell them to go ask on Derby's lists, which might bring more 
users to them.

Don't get me wrong, I agree that less is more and that our samples must 
stay samples - but if we can base them on ASF stuff, all the better.
