It is concerning but I wouldn't classify as a showstopper. It does 
perhaps imply more coupling than ideal between the embedded JDBC driver 
and the underlying engine. Perhaps footprint can be constrained with 
some small but crucial refactoring?

I would suggest checking what you have into a "revolutionary" branch so 
that more people can be involved and help drive a solution.
