Yes, that would be useful.  The main problem is probably the Emacs
interface to the C library (libdb, libgdbm, ...).

There was a project nndb once, which was a Perl server storing
articles in a Berkeley DB speaking a protocol similar to NNTP, and
there was also nndb.el which talked the nndb protocol.  Perhaps that
is one approach for doing things.

Hm.  Maybe a C/Perl/... program speaking some protocol on
stdin/stdout, then invoking that program from Emacs is one way to go.
