Regarding the relational database approach: if you look at Rails you
will notice that the RDBMS is almost completely obscured out of the
application, leaving you to deal with objects only.  The fact that an
RDBMS is on the backend probably has more to do with quick and easy
adoption (most folks are familiar with the paradigm) than to the
necessity of RDBMS over ODBMS.
