I'm curious how CLR per se 'expands' (advances?) the db. I noticed something that is maybe related called Qlink or similar by one of the CLR authors but it seemed like bumpf to me. Is CLR anything more than a copycat of the JVM (the JVM seeming to me to be nothing more an interpreted version of some arbitrary low-level assembly language with a few complex operators added for an object/typing machine of some sort, which isn't necessarily relevant to database theory)?
