But in this case, the client has chosen the technology, without researching
'how' it can be used, perhaps you could explain to them that a square peg
doesn't fit in a round hole, unless the hole is much bigger of course :-)

Perhaps they should download the sources, remove this constraint and start
using their custom build, it would appear, that until they burn their
fingers by losing data and corrupting databases, they are not going to learn
a valuable lesson, that a number of intelligent people have looked at,
analysed the risks and determined that what they are trying to do is not the
best option, especially considering the fact that Classic or Superserver
will serve their needs in a more than adequate method.

Btw, could you trim your posts please :-)
