What do you mean "good ideas"? I have to admit I am not familiar with Derby.

A plugin would be very useful, yes. It would require the creation of a 
Cocoon generator, this would most likely find a home in Cocoon as a Block.

As I hinted at in a previous mail, I have a new contract starting in 
January, for this I need to interface to a Relational database and then 
process the data in Forrest. I was thinking of using the existing Cocoon 
HSQLDB generator (the database doesn't exist yet so I can use anything).

Why should I consider Derby instead?

(in case it is not clear, this means I will be willing to help you get 
around Forrest in order to build this generator, indeed if you haven't 
done it by mid January I will have time to contribute code too).

A Forrest plugin using a Cocoon generator (if we succeed in enabling 
Forrest plugins in Lenya then they would get it for free).
