+1 for the general idea (but I'm not a committer), *but* before we can
really vote we'll have to get several things clear (others already
mentioned a lot of them).

My personal opinion about the programming language: C/C++! Java is far
too slow. But the database must have built-in APIs for C/C++, Java,
Perl, Python and Tcl/Tk, maybe more.
