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.
