Why don't we just code our own XML/Python DB storage 'dbm' file? We could
store things in dictionaries and by keys (wink to Brad) instead of
creating lots of little files. Then we could either load the thing into
memory or just leave it as a file on the filesystem (through auto-pickling
on occasion). I guess it goes by how fast Python can search thru the
keys, but the dictionary type seems so well suited to this.
