I guess my question is "Why?". Are there not enough databases systems available already?

Yeah, of course it is possible. However, as noted above, why would you want to, unless you just want a challenge.

I must point out that db4o is an OODBMS not a RDBMS.

what kind of question is that?

You could develop anything with almost any language.
