I was involved (a little bit) in the Suneido DB dev.

Since Andrew, the Author of Suneido, is going to port the core database 
from C++ to Java, he immediately has to find out that the memory mapped 
file implementation of SDK 1.5 is..erm...shi* 'cause of non existing 
UnMap, slicing,  et al...
D shines here. Also build in GC, std.algo. all in all a good starting 
point. IO Streaming, well, guess Andrei should say something about it.

In case that you need some help in designing your DB, do not hesitate to 
ask Andrew. He's a nice guy and always willing to help.
