Making metadata storage SQL-driven

I really wonder why we rely on files for our metadata. It has issues [1]
where a synchronous fopen and read or write operation would really take
too long, requiring us to schedule reads/writes. Without doing any
performance measures, I think this could significantly speed up our
metadata code for big directories. I think we should do the same as
beagle, and rely on a tiny SQL server, doing all our metadata operations
synchronously. I'm not a big fan of EAs, since they seem to be some
different flavors and inconsistencies among various implementations.
