Thanks for the pointer to StackOverflow. One of my potential uses for a read-only database happens to be for SKU keyed records as in the question. 

I was actually considering an approach similar to bisect (although I didn't know about that module). cdb also looks like a possibility.

But you're right about SQLite. That's a good general purpose choice and probably sufficient. I read somewhere that trying to find the "best" Python module for a given application can drive you crazy.
