For instance I tend to have systems that repeat the same non trivial 
query repeatedly. I find a database that provides *some* from
of query execution plan cache advantageous.

Finally I tend to get involved in some rather nasty procedute/trigger
coding and have implemented entire template engines in a database
schema more than once - when doing something as kooky as this you
soon find out some rather odd limits.
