However I would argue that if Hibernate fulfills your needs, you never 
needed a SQL database in the first place - what you needed was ACID 
persistence. Why not just use something like Berkeley DB JE, which 
doesn't have the overhead of a query language at all - and is 
significantly faster because of it.
