sapdb isn't open source yet. it will be in a few months. when it does it 
looks like it will instantly become the most advanced open source database 
out there. my current rankings of the general os rdbms  in terms of features 
postgresql->interbase->mysql  

currently sapdb has only opened the database manager and the client 
interfaces as well as the build environment needed to make these from src.

the feature list of this database is astonishing
www.sapdb.org

to name a few
subtransactions
outer joins
sql 92 compliant, possible modes for db2, oracle 7
very nice prodecural sql language.
lots of statistics information
really rich set of standard functions
scrollable cursors

this is a great candidate for a zodb storage
