Re: Moving to a central db

I dunno.  I think there are plenty of reasons not to do this also.
There are pro's and cons but the basic issue is that businesses are
supposed to be separate entities.  I think separate financial entities
really ought to be in separate databases.  I think it is also simpler
because I would like to move all the reporting stuff into a reporting
schema.  Things could even be organized into schemas in different
manners (I don't like table prefixes).

Just my personal preference.

The separate database option is for users who have more than one LedgerSMB
database, which I think includes some of Travers' clients.  Most users would
just have a schema.

If we start with a separate schema, it's relatively easy to have it in a
separate DB, or not, via a simple configuration option.
