I wonder if this is kind of a red herring in this case.  The reason
for having multiple backends is that different applications have
different needs and priorities.  If the convenience of a flat file
format outweighs the need for fast performance when manipulating
metadata, then it's OK to make that tradeoff, isn't it?
