Which sql solution did you try? I just put a grass-sql archive there
recently.  It isn't really meant as a full solution but it works well
with what we are doing...  I have also written a GUI using xforms to
build the sql queries easier... Anyway if it was my program that
didn't fit, what exactly are your requirements? I am interested as I
think it is a powerful solution...
