I like the fact you're saying database and not datasets ;)

Depending on how powerfull is your constraint system.

Hum, that one: schema migration. Probably already a lot of work on the
theory of that.

Business reporting generator. Many pre-existing competition doing lots of
very cool visualisations already.

Some have done a datathon in Paris with Pharo (Serge, Onil, Me a bit in
remote, Alexandre, Alvaro...). Had big issues opening a large file (~66GB
of CSV data).

Would be nice ;)
