Please don't end up like DabbleDB.

This is the biggest concern - invest a ton of effort into something and then the company gets bought out and the product dies. The least Dabble could have done was release DabbleDB as open source.

  It would be nice for them to have written in the contract to open source their product if they go out of business and are not purchased are liquidated by another company.  
  I too spent a lot of time utilizing DabbleDB unique tool-set and have yet to get back to the level of productivity after they went under.
