Do you want to implement a special solution for your problem, or add a table
type that is a link to a different table. With ODBC you can do this in M$
Access for instance.
IMO a link to a different databse would be a very nice feature to have. We
could add the code to link an external postgres database as well.

Yes, there should a an adapter for each different DB system.

Interested yes. But I'm afraid I have neither time to work on it, nor enough
inside knowledge. But then I'm working to get more knowledge anyway.
