perhaps digikam should use a generic interface, such as libdbi 
<http://libdbi.sourceforge.net>, which would allow the use of a proper 
multi-user, shared database, such as firebird or postgresql.

libdbi implements a database-independent abstraction layer in C, similar to 
the DBI/DBD layer in Perl. Writing one generic set of code, programmers can 
leverage the power of multiple databases and multiple simultaneous database 
connections by using this framework.
