SDB databases support:
* Multiple record types

Exact or approximate key
Relative position (ie: first, next, previous, & last)
Record Id (db stack card Id)
Raw record number (db stack card number - 3)
* Update and retrieval of individual fields
* Record selection based on field contents.
SDB, like Serendipity Library in general, is multi-lingual and user
translatable. The Library currently ships with language support in
Dutch, English, French, German, & Spanish.
