Alex, et al:

I deleted the original messages because I thought the subject was 
adequately covered, then decided to note:

If one uses properties, text files, or a special "mirror" stack, one 
is designing an app-specific approach which must be redesigned for 
each new project.

If one uses an SQL or SDB database, one is gaining proficiency in a 
generalized approach that can be applied to future projects.  (SDB 
is, in essence, a generalization of a stack-specific approach used by 
HyperCarders for years.)
