             Subject: encoded text vs database?

    A technical question: what might be reliable criteria for determining when
    a given research problem involving textual data is approached with
    relational database technology, when with text encoding? A related
    non-technical question: how does one cultivate the ability to keep such
    questions always in mind? As has been said, we tend to view each thing
    as something to be hammered with the hammer in hand.
