I thought I had answered on this (but maybe it was with the performance problems I was having -- seems better today).

You _can_ put all the things you need to do in one database, as long as the table names are not the same. You can only have one table with each name in any database. If you don't have any tables with any of the names of the databases in Links, you'll be ok.

The reason for using different databases is for ease in backing up, and for keeping data separate.

It's nicer if you have the ability to use different databases for different programs/purposes, but as long as you don't try to use the same table names, you'll be ok with one.
