It might be worth looking at sqlite[0] then, it gives you a real
sqlish database without having to maintain a real database server.

I use it with Class::DBI for small stuff as it's the simplest thing I
could find that Class::DBI supports.

[0] http://sqlite.org

And for an interactive shell, dbish from the DBI::Shell distributions
