I have, didn't find much. There's a boost library (of course) but it seems 
overkill for the task (you'd also have to use their matching collection 
classes). I thought there'd be at least a SQLite-alike or something. Of course 
given that this is just a key-value store then some kind of NoSQL type of 
database would be better. Maybe someone else can enlighten me. :)
