Actually, RT1 was hampered by the fact that at the time it was written, the only
free SQL database was Hughs miniSQL which didn't support any sort of field
longer than ~256 bytes iirc.

RT2 stores things in blobs...which works fine with modern mysql revs.  
The fact that postgres 7.1 doesn't yet support 8bit-safe blobs is rather 
a bummer.
