	Subject: Spatial extensions for Derby?
	I'm wondering if there is any interest in having/developing
spatial extensions for Derby?  I can see value in having Derby available
as an embedded database for working with large spatial datasets.
	I expect that adding spatial to Derby would involve:
	- defining spatial types
	- implementing a spatial index (probably an R-tree)
	- adding spatial query and manipulation functions
	As the developer of the JTS Topology Suite API, I would be happy
to offer this package as a component of a spatial implementation in
Derby.  Feel free to contact me if this is of interest.
