I agree!

Sorry. It is a misunderstanding! I have not expressed myself clearly enough!
 I have not suggested to substitute a source code control system with a
PostgreSQL! What I wanted to say is that the center of every CASE tool is a
database of objects. Even if the entire object is later stored in a plain
text file while working it is a strict database. My idea was to use
PostgreSQL or any other DBMS as a database of objects used while working
with the CASE (adding class, modifying class attribute etc.).

	Source Code Control System is necessary as well and there is no sens
in designing wheel for the second time i. e. using Postgres for that

	Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!!
