Hrmhrmhrm... well, I basically agree about the niceness of being able to
append datablocks to external .blend files... however, that SQL stuff is a bit
beyond my understanding.

In a professional setup, your data is stored on a remote server anyway (via NFS),
namely your company's (or home's :) fileserver, and this server does regular 
backups to a suitable backup system automatically
without any user interaction.
