As I develop with Lua and SQLite, I keep wishing there was a special
lua table type that somehow got paged to disk.

I've read about the java library: (Prevayler is the free-software Prevalence
layer for Java.)
(which references the database paper:

And find myself wishing for something similar as an addon for Lua...
not pervasive persistance, just the ability to set the metamethods for
a table to use the disk/memory for paging huge tables.

Anyone doing anything similar? Would this be hard? I guess I need to
read the section of PIL about Metatables and Metamethods so I can ask
intelligent questions here.

Any feedback/suggestions?
