In this example, the commercial tool would probably be a
single executable and not a set of libraries or plug-ins.
To my understanding, that's similar to a User's Guide to
Version 9 based on, extending and correcting the Guide
for Version 8.

I greatly appreciate your time and consideration ... with

Not particularly, though that's a general direction that
software appears to be moving.  Primarily, it's used with
client applications that need transaction-based data
storage.  We would like to allow others to build tools
around the package like the database repair tool I suggested.

Again, thank you for your efforts to educate the unenlightened.
