Luis, there's no debate about SQL in general versus RPG in general.
There is (well, was, hopefully over now) discussion about a *specific*

whether that was better than using RPG *for the same specific task*.

Steve already mentioned that they don't have it, and installing it
would be difficult and time-consuming, due to procedural/political
