I was looking through their docs, and it seems like it's definitely an 
early early release.

While it supports sub transactions, it has many gaping holes left to be 

the only data type supported is string
No support for OR in the where clause
No mention of triggers, constraints, et. al.

But Matt Dillon is a great programmer, I could see this database becoming 
a contender in a year or two for certain types of use cases.
