It's certainly possible, but as it stands, it does introduce an  
additional configuration burden on _every_ user of Asterisk.  The nice  
thing about astdb today is that it requires no additional  
configuration.  So for the minimal usage it gets inside the code, and  
for very basic dialplan usage, it's ready to go without any extra  
work.  But, if you want anything more advanced, you have to set up  
realtime or func_odbc.
