On the question of using a database, while I would agree it would 
be nice (and at least one other person has suggested Postgres I 
think), I have a couple of questions. Firstly, which platforms does it
support? The minimum supported platforms for FreeCASE were 
Linux & Win32, as I recall. Does Postgres support Win32? This is 
of vital importance to me, as I don't actually have a computer of my 
own at the moment, and only have access to Win32 machines. 
Secondly, what licence does it use? If we were going to use it then 
I think it would need to be GPLed, correct?
