Well, with Adam Sussman adding Postgres95 support to PHP/FI and my
current emphasis on making an Apache PHP module there should be a good
chance of having something which will compete with these "RDBMS-enabled"
servers out there.  PHP currently supports both mSQL and Postgres95 and
others will be supported at some point as well.

It is quite seamless as it is right now even without the module support.
With a mod_actions redirect, for Joe User it appears to be built directly
into the server.
