Just like MSAccess, Base is extremely useful as a frontend for
database engines.

The last time I tried to run a non-trivial query (involving a join) from
Access against PostgreSQL, the result was a never-ending cursor
animation. It seems that Access fetches *all* records from the database
and runs the query locally.

You must not use the built-in JET engine with Access. HSQL is an
excellent platform independent database engine but you must not embed
HSQL in extensions which are installed and repackaged every time you
"open" or "close" the so called "database document".

"Embedding" databases anywhere is imho nonsense. Database *content* can
imho be passed around between users in a pretty fool-proof way as a
zipped SQL dump, if required.
