I don't know if it's my place to comment on this, but I will even if I
shouldn't :-().

IMHO, DB is already *far* too cluttered with constructs that are specific
to programming languages.  Rather than add more programming language
"stuff", I think what's already in DB should be moved into one or more
separate libraries or modules, preferably with their own namespace.  A
namespace change for some subset will be non-backwards compatible, but I
don't think that's a reason to avoid it.
