[development] Everything's a node != Everything's in 1 table

I think Edgar has some novel ideas, and they provide an implementation
for my previous ideas of base objects and a cross-object database API.
Although we would need benchmarks to be sure, I suspect that for inner
joins on a reasonable number of node types (which should all have
compact primary keys), it should be very fast. This is the kind of
operation most databases are highly optimized at performing.
 MySQL limits the number of tables in a join to either 31 or 61,
depending on the length of a longword for the host and operating
system. How many node types maximum would we ever have?
