    It seems mostly pointless to me. Performance won't be able to match that of C-based dbm systems + Storable. It may be a good option for people who have a VERY narrow and VERY deep data structure they want to store, but that isn't very common. It still has the same problems with TIE that MLDBM does, i.e. second-level data updates do not trigger the TIE methods.
    • I take back the part about second-level updates: it handles these by TIE-ing the inner data as well. I guess this means it only works for standard Perl structures though, and can't store objects.
