A database like MySQL and mariadb cache the updates and then write
them to disk every 1/2 to full second (or however configured).  Seems
like a good idea.

I wouldn't consider MySQL and its descendents as good references for
data integrity.
So I come back to my suggestion earlier today - LO Base needs to give
the user the opportunity to specify what they want - RAM or file
based, single file or multiple files.

That would only confuse most end users.

The point is that the developers should make the most reasonable
choice - Which is imho obviously to use exclusively an external
client-server RDBMS.

And since the driver for PostgreSQL already comes with LO that's the
best choice. PostgreSQL is legendary for its robustness. Besides
shipping with a reasonable default configuration for "home" use and
being perfectly scalable up to a multi-master cluster of mainframes.

The developers should rather focus their limited resources on fixing
bugs with the Base client side (forms, reports, etc.).

Yes, I know that you can link to other back-end db's, but LO Base
doesn't create those db's - that has to be done ahead of time by
someone that is skilled with the particular db.

With PgAdmin (which comes with PostgreSQL) it's as simple as creating a
new document with LO.
