     Thanks lots. I'll take a look at gunicorn.
     The database could be a set of flat files that store
strings in colon-delimited fields. That option is poor

* I'll have to code data conversion and other functions
   that are common to database management software

* Data should be encrypted so's to require the user to
   use my functions to generate files for USB stick
   transfer (no LAN connex as a point of security).
   -- a flatfile manager for ASCII data would work fine
   -- an rdbms would work, tho' it will be best that
      installation, configuration, connection is easy
