You sound motivated, and from your other answers farther along that
you initially let out. Given that it's a subject of interest to me,
I'd gladly have a closer look once it's available somewhere. As far as
back-ends, I have experience with SQLite and Oracle OCI.

Talking about Oracle too, what about "Object-Relational" support? This
support is mandatory I believe to get into XMLType and all the Oracle
Spatial "datatypes". In my experience, you can't wrap / automate
everything, and you need to leave the door open for raw access to the
underlying API to communicate directly with the back-end "natively".
