Some database functionality from Mambo

You could execute queries on your database right from the admin interface:
no need to access phpMyAdmin or another tool, very handy -if you know anything about writing your own sql queries that is.. :)

Backup functionality was very handy too.. still wonder why this
was completely removed from the code..?
Of course, backing up can be handled by extensions, but maybe
it would be better to be able to secure the content natively,
without having to install anything.

I guess they may have been concerned that some users wouldn't know what they were doing and would screw up the site somehow. If that were the case, It would still be nice to see this as an addon component.

Maybe. This should be restricted to super-admins anyway, and if you don't know how to use it, you probably shouldn't and wouldn't ..?!

As a person in the know ;)

I can tell you that the reason we lost the Database functionality from Mambo is that this functionality was essentially an external `library` created by another author (who I believe was formerly part of the team that created Mambo) asked for it to be removed from Mambo (4.5.1 i think).

And actually there is some conjecture over whether the database functionality currently in 4.6 is built on this same `library` and if so whether they have asked permission from its author.
