My $0.02 :

The main purpose of a dBase driver to me would be to do 
one-off transfers from legacy applications. I can't 
imagine anyone wanting to use dBase as a back-end for a 
new GNUe application. Are there any more "modern" RDBMS 
systems that use the dBase format *natively* (as opposed 
to an import/export option)?
