SQLite implements enough of a subset of SQL to be genuinely useful and it's performance isn't too bad either. There is a Zope DA for it somewhere too.

We've never been able to use Gadfly for testing as it's so far from standard SQL that it just causes more problems than it solves - as we saw at the beginning of this thread.

If I'm allowed to say anything, I would like to see gadfly being
replaced by sqlite. It's available mostly everywhere except in Windows
by default, as many products already use it. sqlite itself is 'public
domain' and the python da has the same license as zlib if i recall,
which is very permissive as well.
