Why use standard CGI? This is a perfect application for Zope, the ZODB,
and the Catalog. There could be a standard browsable interface which could
be used with a web browser, and the special-purpose client could use
XML-RPC to communicate with the server.

I would be willing to help implement a Zope-based solution, if
experienced Zope developers are needed.
