[plt-scheme] disk-based associative array

I've got the same requirements, but haven't found a good solution so 
far. Last time I tried the SLIB database in DrScheme it was broken. 
Moreover, as far as I remember the *disk-based* database was an 
extension for SCM only. SLIBs simple a-list db is in-memory.

It would be nice to have an Mzscheme interface to Metakit 

Best regards,
