I'd suggest to not lock ourselves in to sqlite. While that's cool for
smaller projects, and in order to be able to just start things up, I'd
rather have the choice to separate the master from the db. Like, one
of the reasons to not use the web display of the master is to protect
the precious one from external evil doers. Having a way to access the
database remotely is one way to do that. Not to mention that one could
drop in something more scalable if required.
