I do hope there is no duplicate effort there.  Yesterday, I was
considerig gdr-sandbox from build-improvements, but maybe we should
just work on compiler-improvements branch and deal with the merges?

As for the databse, I have strong feeling that we should not
underestimate the work done by the dynamic libraries community.
