Much as I live and breath SQL RDBMS I would vote *against* adding that
sort of complication to Exim core code or dependencies.

The existing msql, pgsql, oracle, etc tools can do anything SQL'ish that
makes sense (and a lot that probably should not be done as well!).

cdb, gdb, db'x' etc, do not need much in Exim that is not already there
or easily hooked or 'piped' to (AFAICS..)

'KISS' method suits. An 'optional' package, maybe.....

Exim can be complex enough with its own 'language'.
