It really boils down to how you plan on accessing and administrating
the database. Unless you are talking a huge (i.e. millions) of records,
it doesn't really matter if they are in separate databases.
For example, a search can only be formed from the base of a database.
So in method 1 you can easily search your entire database however with
method 2 you are limited to searching each tree individually.
Is this to be used by and internal application or something else?
