The point is not what people choose once they are in; the problem we
should be trying to solve is how to let people in. Many
of us think that a simple GUI console is a must to catch a high
percentage of potential users.

Which rules it out since it doesn't meet the second point. Unless
we're going to provide Apache bundled with Fb as Oracle does, that is.
But you sure may know or guess what the size of an Oracle "lite" setup is.

Furthermore, I wouldn't want anything with "IB" in its name. We're
trying to differentiate.
