thrown from the door then.
Now, next question: which database engines do you need
If they all fit into the Zeos category, is it easy with Zeos
to switch engines? Even if so, is their the possibility that

If so, you can throw Zeos away... Right?

Go on, ask yourself these questions, write down a set
of requirements and then search for componentsets that
meet these requirements.
