If I'm not mistaken (although I might be and I haven't got the time 
to go back and check) and odb file is effectively a zip file with 
various things in it.

As Tom said, LO (& Ooo, of course) really doesn't have a database 
section.  It has a gateway to a database, in fact different adapters 
for various databases.  This is really very sensible in most ways.  
It just talks to a database engine that is specifically built to do 
the data work and just gives back results.

I believe HSQL is a "cut down" database, on the basis that a lot of 
the bells and whistles of a full database engine aren't required by 
small applications.  Hence it's a small, fast database, without it's 
own data storage, I imagine, since the data for it *is* kept in the 
odb file.

I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong in the technical details
