I've been working on Berkeley DB bindings.  They aren't
ready yet but I have done a lot of the infrastructure.  I
will probably resume work in about two weeks, when some
other projects have finished.   The code is src/libs/bdb in

BDB is quite nice:

  - it is fast
  - it is transactional
  - it runs in-process (no need to admin a separate server)

If you don't need to do ad-hoc queries it can be a very
good solution.
