Folks,

I just got yet another question about embedding Postgres in a binary.
What should be in the FAQ on this subject?  Here's what I have so far:

Q:  How can I embed PostgreSQL in a binary?

A:  You can't.  PostgreSQL is designed from the ground up to run as a
separate set of processes on a server.  If you really need to embed an
SQL engine in a binary, consider the excellent
<a href="http://www.sqlite.org/">SQLite</a> for the purpose.

Comments?  Criticisms?  Rotten tomatoes?

Cheers,
David.
