In lieu of such a person I'll offer up my half-baked
thoughts.  I think spgsql will be easier to setup but
I imagine SchemeQL will help a lot when traversing
complicated graphs.  I'm not sure about CLOB/BLOB
support in either.  Perhaps the authors could comment?

We do plan to implement to a common db access layer,
which SchemeQL would exist on top of.  In this case
you wouldn't have to make a choice.  We're currently
stalled due to lack of time.  If anyone is interested
in pushing this further they should bring it up on the
schematics mailing list.  Our current draft is in CVS
at src/libs/db/

I'm sure you're aware of the agent work in this area. 
Both myself and Bruce Butterfield and interested in
web testing frameworks so we may be able to help out
with the "grunt work".  Again, the schematics list is
probably the best place to discuss this.  Time is, as
always, a problem.
