Aw, come on. I was wondering a while back whether we should build some UDFs
*into* the engine, but wondering if it wouldn't make the software too bulky.
And we are discussing putting a JVM in it? I really wouldn't be very happy
about it (after all, I would probably go on using UDFs and stored procedures
for most of my needs).
