Hi Nick,

We are using SRS with great success. It can also maintain dozens of 
other databases, integrates tools such as EMBOSS and BLAST, and supports 
Sun Grid Engine. It is *not* lightweight or easy to administer, though. 
The upside is that you are getting a heavyweight commercial product that 
is free for academia.
SRS is from Lion: http://www.lionbioscience.com . The reference 
implementation is at EBI: http://srs.ebi.ac.uk

I'll be happy to answer any other questions.
