That is feasible to make. It could replace all of the customize. But
one does need SQL database for that, not just key/value database such
as GDBM. But I vouch to have GDBM and other DBM-like databases equally
accessible straight from Emacs and Emacs Lisp.

I am editing entries in the PostgreSQL database by using Emacs module
to access PostgreSQL, by using tabulated-list-mode, and here is the
text of one such entry.
