A computer scientist friend of mine tells me that the "flat file" structure of DBMan/Links is inherently inefficient and will eventually ( he said soon ) reach a limit of usability which is much less than say using something like mySQL.

That's true, and well known. SQL will always be better than flat-file databases due to speed and capacity. Generally too, the SQL server is written in C or C++ which is far quicker than perl.
