Hi Matt,

What kind of data are you trying to represent?  And how large will that
data be?

The reason I ask is because I'm going to lead with the silly question:
would something like the "shelve" module be sufficent?


I'm just making sure we can cross 'shelve' off as not viable for the
application.  But knowing why 'shelve' would be unsuitable will be helpful
in figuring out a good solution.  *grin*
