The database is configured in gnunet.conf *per subsystem*, so you can
use MySQL for FS, Postgres for GNS/namestore and sqlite for peerstore if
you like.

It is also impossible to avoid per-subsystem code, as the tables,
indices and SQL queries differ between subsystems, and sadly the SQL
dialects are too far apart to translate automatically between them.

Hence you have a per-DB "general" library (libgnunetDB), plus plugins
for each subsystem for each (supported) database.
