> Didn't IBM DELIVER with the AS/400 / OS/400 combo?
No, because the OS/400 isn't relational. It is but the engine for SQL, and even SQL is in several violations of fundamental precepts and proscriptions of the relational model.

Pick is not even up to SQL standards. It's not even a deviation from the relational model, but totaly unrelated.
