Shelve is another alternative, shipped with python and rather straightforward. 
Shelve as ZODB use pickles of objects but, unlike ZODB, won't need you change 
anything  to your actual classes.

>>>[8]: import shelve

>>>[9]: s = shelve.open('db')

>>>[10]: a, b, c = 5, 4., ("foo", "bar")

>>>[11]: s['a'], s['b'], s['c'] = a, b, c

>>>[12]: s.close()

>>>[13]:

db: Berkeley DB (Hash, version 8, native byte-order)
maric at redflag1 13:46:44:~$ ipython

>>>[1]: import shelve

>>>[2]: s = shelve.open('db')

>>>[3]: for name, value in s.items() : print name, value
   ...:
b 4.0
a 5
c ('foo', 'bar')

>>>[5]: del s['b']

>>>[6]: s['c'] += ('baz',)

>>>[7]: s.sync()

The sync method may not work on all platform, maybe you'll have to close and 
re-open the db file to write to disk.
