I use DB/2 a lot in my day job (don't get me started!), so I have a low priority wish to create a DB/2 interface so I could build tools that suck less than the default tools provided with DB/2.  There's a good python module for DB/2.  Oracle, DB/2 and SQL Server are the top 3 commercial DBs, last I heard.  In case anybody needs a project... 
+1 for dbm.  Incidentally, Philip Windley was asking about a Scheme interface to Sleepycat DBXML[1], which seems like a good fit for Scheme.  If anyone knows of one, you might drop him a line.
