Well, I think the DB can optimize things by adding certain constraints
such as foreign keys, uniques, etc. It doesn't look like Jifty uses
those things. Also, I would like to have the DB be the final sanity
check for data going in, just in case I need to bypass the application
front-end (AKA Jifty.)

Also, I am very comfortable with SQL, so I'd like to stay close to
it...[ducks]. :)
