Another way of making simple databases in core: use
something like DBD::CSV with the Mmap to keep the
accessed records in core with a persistent store on 
the disk.

> This is a bugfix release, especially for users of operating systems which
> enforce mmap()'s specified behaviour of failing to map locked files.
> From the README:
> This module provides a shared cache, using a memory mapped file. Very
> useful for mod_perl applications. If routines are provided which interact
> with the underlying data, access to the cache is completely transparent,
> and the module handles all the details of refreshing cache contents, and
> updating underlying data, if necessary.
