Some might call this a feature and not a bug. I prefer to keep things
the way they are.

While we're on the subject of data ...

How difficult would it be to create an "export statistics" command so 
individuals can

You would have to decide on a universally accepted export format
first. I know no such thing.

Perhaps the best way to address the issue of which database to use, is to use
none at all.  This low-tech method would reduce the complexity of the code base,

This seems plain wrong to me. We would need to design a format. Write
code for saving and retrieving data, and not the least to collect
statistics from the data in a effective and bug free way. SQL does all
that and more since the database is relational, i.e. links databases
containing different types of data together. If you want and need to
you can easily export the contents of the database to a text file for
retrieval in other programs.

Plus the sql code is already there, working and (hopefully) bug free.
Writing new code as you suggest would certainly introduce more bugs
and waste more of the developers time.
