I agree.  I'm offering to try to adapt the code to work sql storage systems
*if* I can find someone who is willing to help with (a considerable amount
of) the work involved.

If you're not willing to help, I may go ahead and code some stuff up anyway.
But I would still need someone to test/debug it...

"TAD (Technology Attachment Disorder) is an unshakable, impractical devotion
to a brand, platform, product line, or programming language. It's relatively
harmless among the rank and file, but when management is afflicted the damage
can be measured in dollars. It's also contagious -- someone with sufficient
political clout can infect an entire organization."
