I was sort of kidding (hence the ;-) and the "/me ducks"). But people do
do ETL kinds of things with Neo4j. Joining across thousands of tables to
create a graph sounds like a nightmare. Neo4j has open source licenses.
The commercial level products are under the APL, IIRC. Sometimes people
care about that, and sometimes it's fine. But I haven't kept up with the
commercial level licensing - I use the GPL version.
