In this case, it will need to be based in a database, or json file. In
the case of a Database, it will need to be managed, and I don't think
Sysadmin is too fond of using a database for security
reasons. In the case of a JSON file, that would need to go in SVN

Getting the needed SVN access however can be done easily, by filing a
Sysadmin bug report.
