1.9 is rather out of date, hsql is at 2.2.x currently.

Are you sure this is where you want to put your efforts - It would be
really a good thing, IMO, to maybe take a look at removing Base as a
standard package, moving it to an extension, and leaving behind a
runtime package for ODB files. 

The embedded hsqldb was not the best move folks made here, IMO, while
the functionality most certainly resonates with a segment of the user
base (small-medium(still small)business) - it is again IMO a mistake to
focus on the developement features of the Base package as the end user -
it makes more sense to focus on an in-house developer/resident pcGurur
(or freelancer) as a target audience for a development package ala
extension.
