I think a lot of people would object to replacing a small database such as
SQLite, which is easily integrated into the FreeSWITCh source code, with an
Erlang application. Somehow, I don't see FreeSWITCH users accepting all of the
dependencies that would bring, unless they're already using the Erlang module
for other reasons. However, if it would be of benefit to Erlang users, I'm
sure the FreeSWITCH developers would gladly accept a module.

There are lots of databases out there, for example, http://monetdb.cwi.nl/ to
mention just one that a Web search located for me.

Which ones get supported depends on whether anyone is sufficiently interested
to write modules for them.

PostGRESQL and MySQL are already on the list, notably.
