The Python and Lua objects also support arbitrary messages on their
inlets. Both languages have DB modules for just about every DB,
compilation of these externals only has to be done only once. But as
everyone knows that I don't really understand why a DB external has to
be a C/C++ external, I'll better be quiet now. ;)
