How about the idea of freeSQL ( Please replace
'freenet' or 'Freenet' with 'gnunet':


"Most SQL-based web apps require you to own and operate your own,
private, database application, and then share that information with
others via your web site. With FreeSQL, you can write apps that use a
global "communal" database built into the fabric of Freenet. Keep in
mind that "communal" doesn't have to mean "world-writable" (although it
can). Because of Freenet's secure SSKs, you can make your database
"world-readable". FreeSQL is coming along nicely. The interactive SQL
parser is much improved, and we can now support SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE,
CREATE, and DELETE commands. The DB schema is stored in Freenet. We can
also support primary and secondary keys (indexes) and, most importantly,
we can now parse the output from mysqldump. That's right, you can dump
your MySQL database to a file, and then read it in to FreeSQL.
Hopefully, this means that porting apps from MySQL to FreeSQL should be
only a little while off..."
