Out of curiosity, I was wondering if I could embed our SQL frameworks into an iPhone application and use that to access a SQLite database, or a MySQL or PostgreSQL database anywhere on the Internet.

What it means is that we can do version of Luca for the iPhone, if that makes sense. Or any number of database-centred, enterprise-friendly applications.
Just imagine the possibilities...
