So don't use SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase or MySQL. Use PostgreSQL. ;-)

This is equally valid. My problem is that every time I get to start using one 
of these, it ends up with so much data that I should've gone with the 
database from the very beginning. If you *know* your data set is never going 
to get very large, then using files or Berkeley DB is a very, very good idea.
