Hi John Goerzen,

I wonder which design decisions are causing you troubles. Could you
explain this? All features which you mentioned can be added easily to
HSQL as well. It is better to share the effort on single library
rather than to have multiple similar libraries. I am willing to work
on HSQL improvement.
