Well, I need application to handle patients of me & my wife doing
counselling & homeopathy and here we are not having 80 patients in 6
hours as my wife has as GP doctor here in Croatia :-)

Besides that, SQLite can handle much big databases then it is required
for our purpose and names like Adobe, Symbian & Mozilla are members of
SQLite Consortium.

Moreover, the need to keep some client data is arousing in another
Haskell application which we need to write and so we will be able to
solve it by abstracting this database back-end 'cause SQLite will be
used as application's storage format.

However, if you our small clinic will find the need for client/server
architecture, there won't be much code to change if using HDBC (however,
Takusen is another option which we'll investigate).
