IMO, the most impressive part of the presentation was at the very end, when the talked about database organization of the developers code. "Select all the buttons and change their shape" didn't we ranted about it here 5 years ago? Therefore, it's not really about the integration of SQL with procedural programming (how can you embed high abstraction language with the framework of low one?), its extending the boundaries of database applications to novel areas.
