Hmm... Perheaps it is time to implement some common framework for simple
databases that would unify access to them from lua?

AFAIR there are already gdbm, bdb and cdb, all implemented
independently, and all sharing similar characteristics and providing
more or less the same functionality.

It wouldn't hurt if the framework contained some helper methods
that would allow to easily use such disk based DB as backend for
table/hash constructs in lua. Something like:

db ={type="cdb",file="somefile"}
db.key = value
print (db["rrw"])
