Derby does take very long to start up.  Our database sizes are generally 
quite large (gigabytes), but even smaller databases take "too long" to 
start up, particularly comparing to HSQLDB.

IIRC, someone said they were going to address this issue the last time 
it was brought up (may have been by me.)


(...PS... This H2 thing is new to me.  I wonder what it's like at 
handling tens of gigabytes of data.)
