Using IBM i as just another nondescript DB doesn't sound like an efficient use of resources.

Of course my view of the most efficient path forward with Open Source is
"install a Linux LPAR and do the fancy stuff there, where it's at home, and
just slurp the data from the IBM i LPAR".

Not that I don't love PASE. I do love PASE. But trying to make everything
on Linux work on i seems inefficient in comparison to "Let Linux be Linux,
let IBM i be IBM i," since every possible mode of connectivity works
between the two.
