[ic] Database Structure general question.

I wanted to use MySQL so I wouldn't more reliable datastorage than plain
text file.  But after I upgrade to MySQL I noticed that Interchange still
uses some text files instead of the database.  For example shipping.asc is
used instead of the database, but the coutry list is in the database.

It just seems kind of stupid to use two methods.  Why on earth not use the
database for everything (execpt images).  I'm just curious why the default
configuration is like that.
