The installation is simplified when we can rely on the integrated  
database by default. Of course, anyone can move it off externally for  
further tuning.

Yeah, and actually using the features of a relational database to  
handle more advanced application logic can simplify certain things a  
lot (e.g. caching). I'm OK with adding a setting for "query-cache- 
size" in the Administration Interface.
