Why SQLite does this ( http://sqlite.org/ )
and is very fast.  May be faster than Derby.

Application users are used to having a single
file manage a 'set of work'.  Eg. a PSD file
for work with an image, or a XLS, or DOC file
etc.

If a developer uses Derby for storage this
would get cumbersome.  Zipping the derby DB
directory is one approach, but that
complicates application saves, crash recovery,
etc.
