Sort of, but Berkeley DB is probably too big and complicated to use on a
wimpy little handheld - the library alone is nearly 1Mb.
Hmm. How about some sort of custom simple data store with a Python
wrapper on it, so that I could use Zope to let people help build the
content sets from wherever they are, and then just move the whole
content wad to a handheld? The content's going to be something like
simple HTML - like SquishDot articles - with a catalog holding metadata:
language, subject, expiry date, source...
Sort of like:
[ Zope ] -> [ Python wrapper ] -> [ C API ] -> [ Content DB ]
in the content management context and:
[ Embedded HTTP server ] -> [ C API ] -> [ Content DB ]
for accessing it. Hmm... Has anybody done anything like this?
