Codd: Going from VERY foggy memory here, but I do remember personally taking
the Codd rules/tests and applying/satisfying them one at a time with Pick.
Pick did meet the Codd published rules for being considered a relational
database. But did Codd people look at Pick is the question - on that, I have
no clue, but I'd be suprised.
Multivalues - that right there is the magic of Pick. Not just that they
supported it, but how artfully & easily they supported it because of the
design. That's what made Pick phenominal.
