I started playing a little with Magma yesterday and I sure look forward
into doing more of that. I would guess that building a team development
tool using Magma would be simply wonderful. Working with a real
transactional object space á la GemStone is truly fantastic.

If you have never tried it you *really* should. Going back to other
means of persistance after having used a good OODB just makes you want
to cry.

But I don't think Magma can store blocks yet but AFAIK Chris has that
planned when Anthony's stuff arrives.
