You probably could, but it would be overkill for a single user
environment, and painfully small for multiuser.

Ugly. You throw away many of the advantages of a separate database
server (multiuser access, primarily) and end up with an embedded
database that was never intended to be an embedded database - and that
after a lot of work and a lot of bugs.
Look at <http://www.hwaci.com/sw/sqlite/> if you need SQL or
<http://www.cql.com/>, <http://www.equi4.com/metakit>, or
Check the licensing terms before investigating too far - while some of
them are freely available, some appear freely available at first glance
but have very high licensing costs for commercial use.
http://freshmeat.net/articles/view/305/ discusses a bunch of SQL
databases, including embedded ones. http://freshmeat.net/articles/view/307/
discusses some non-SQL embedded DBs.
