I'm not adverse to using a DB, but I was looking for something less 
resource intensive than MySQL considering my small VPS. I found one that 
uses MongoDB and several that use SQLite.  I guess what I really need is 
something that has less "features" out of the box. I'll never run a 
forum, have users, comments, need complex taxonomies, etc.
