There are, it seems to me, too many problems with that.
I'm completely against the notion of managing auditing requirements and configurations which reference tables, users, and other objects which exist in the catalog by using flat files. To me, that's ridiculous on the face of it. Other databases have had this kind of capability as a matter of course for decades- we are far behind in this area. Thanks, Stephen
