Progress report

I'm off doing some festivities this weekend, so I most likely won't have any new commits to register. But this past week I did already log a bunch of changes:

The one thing I'm most terrified of is what'll happen when we test with MySQL. Almost everything I've been doing has been backended with SQLite, although I did do some early MySQL tests. That required me writing an intermediation library, so that certain activities -- like the handling of full-text indices -- could be dealt with appropriately on each DB platform.

Revisiting all that stuff makes my hair curl, but if I don't do it, no one else will. I'm mostly worried about things like platform-specific handlings of dates, or collation types in MySQL -- all that stupid nitty-gritty that SQLite doesn't bother with. Sometimes fewer features really does constitute progress.
