often i use text files at my data sources, delimted by the "|" symbol. 
i simply delimit the fields of each line, then when i need to open them, 
i open the text file, populate an array with each line, then explode the 
fields for each to get the corresponding values.   i use this method for 
catalogs - and even backend interfaces, for which the client can 
add/edit/delete products.  everything seems to be working fine, and 
there doesn't seem to be a need for MySQL or anything.  i was wondering 
if there is anything i'm not thinking of that perhaps would push me to 
favor using php and mysql instead of the plain old text file.
