I am sure a Rev-based database is not as fast - but if the speed is good
enough, then it has the advantage of being written in transcript -
meaning Rev developers can make all sorts of modifications very easily.
I can see how this would be very useful.
And there are some things that Rev does that are really quite fast,
despite being scripted.

I don't know how he could seriously answer your question. Valentina 2 is
usually several multiples faster than other C/C++ based databases, so
like comparing a footrace with five different star ships, "system based"
If speed is a concern at all, anything that is not compiled to machine
isnt going to work for you. If all you are going to do is store a
records locally and you don't need lightning speed, just about anything
work for you. It just wont grow very fast.
