Actually Perl has a builtin db interface. So as long as key/value pairs
are human-readable, perl is the tool to handle them.

SQL databases either have to dump the whole file on demand, or use a
format similar (but not necessarily compatible) with db. In either
case, SQL database is the *only* tool to handle the file and far less
ubiquitous than perl.

I refuse to use .sig
