And then I'm sure that most people made the same argument about
relational databases before the 1980s.  At that time, they were still,
for the most part, a novelty, and by no means the norm...  Not to
mention the fact that they weren't stable and the technology behind them
couldn't be considered 'sound'.  Hell, most of them still suck.
