One thing that came up repeatedly in going through the ITS system is issues
with back-sql (A quick count gives me 23). Given that this backend has
always been marked experimental and has numerous bugs, I would suggest that
unless someone steps up who is willing to support it that it be removed
from the 2.5 release series (i.e., make it master only until someone is
willing to maintain it).
