I generally do not want to talk to a DB directly though if performance
becomes an issue I might have to. Generally it goes
MyFedora <-json-> mfquery proxy <-json/xmlrpc etc.-> Fedora Resource
<-db connection-> DB.
MyFedora but it would take longer and I would have to replicate the
logic for determining if a user is allowed to modify. If it changed in
bodhi MyFedora would be out of sync and the user would be presented with

In your opinion, which would be better? a project which adds value to
PackageDB or a project which focuses on the PackageDB related
integration with MyFedora ?
