Well, with ~ 300 notes (many of which are quite large), my Tomboy note
files take up a total of 1.5 MB.  And they have a lot of data that
would not be included in the proposed sqlite db.

That being said, we could definitely look at a hybrid solution as Mike
suggests, and store the actual content in files.  But then the user
has to manage that SD card usage themselves if they decide to
uninstall Tomdroid, right?

I have not previously looked at this.  Thanks for the link.
