I had read about that. I'm sure nokia will manage to screw that up like 
everything else. I'm sure by the next release nobody will be able to 
develope for it unless they pay at the rate things are going. The only real 
solution for loadstone is to have our own database. Easier said than done 
thoe. Maybe if we get really lucky Nokia will keep sqlite open source and we 
can just use it. I'm not counting on that thoe.
