I've been playing with a daemon for user data idea too. Right now I
think Storage approach is more appropriate though.
As interesting as Storage may be, it is fairly pie-in-the-sky when it
to solving user problems in a reasonable timeframe. There's no reason
drop *serious* user issues on the floor waiting for some "perfect
come along. :-)
Guess again ;-) Storage as it exists today is a very good back-bone for
implementing Sutra, a metadata system that marco and curtis were
planning as a next-generation medusa (and is certainely geared toward
today's problems). There's very close correspondence between features
sutra wants for metadata and features storage provides for all data.
We are now all working together to make sutra happen by way of storage.
The fastest way to get sutra-like capabilities, by far, is to use
storage at this point. Clearly this incarnation of Storage is not going
to use a system-wide postgres server, but the same api and 95% same code
as the full-fledged storage will be used.
