Re: integrating mysql into the software

How to use mysql without mysql, that's a great question!

In practice I think about two solutions:

* take a look at the perl module DBD::SQLite that offers the kind of things you
might want

* if the problem using mysql is only a matter of user friendlyness regarding to
the install and configuration of the mysql server, you might provide as part
of the install of your app stuff that do it for your users. Perl or
even shell could do that quite easily and transparently.

My opinion? The second choice, coz for manipulating the gut of my data I prefer
rely on strong software as mysql is. Morever developping the glue script
`that do the mysql install and setup for my users that do not want to deal with
anything' will take a bit a time at first but after some tries I could be a
nice little thing I can use everywhere.
