There is no specific objection to SQL. There is a general objection
to adding more utilities to the base system unless a _very_ good case
can be made for including them. So far, no-one has made a compelling
reason to include SQLite (or other SQL engine) into the base system.
SQLite does appear to be a potential candidate for the base system -
the license is acceptable and it is relatively small. On the downside,
SQLite is currently undergoing rapid development - at a rate much
faster than FreeBSD can comfortably accomodate.
