I was talking with them about their multi-user product, which they
advertised, for a brief while, as being free, in a linux-only version.  I
have yet to hear back from them.  Consequently, we are re-evaluating our
DB needs, and will probably look elsewhere.  On the whole, I've been less
than impressed with Tache Group.

We may still use the single user version, but as I understand such things,
that would require us to handle all the locking and data consistancy
mecahnics on the mud-server side, something I was hoping to avoid by using
a DB that would let us have multiple queries running simultaneously.
