Oh, I wasn't telling you not to use sqlite, just was answering
If you really just want to store a flat file, then use a flat file.
If you want to find words more efficiently, then you could use dbm or pysqlite.
If you want to perform full text search, then you could use the
fulltext search capabilities of sqlite, or xapian or create your own
structures with dbm.
dbm and sqlite are definitely part of the platform (you can expect to
find them in future releases). Xapian I'm not so sure, as it is
currently used only by the DataStore and it is scheduled to be
reviewed, thus exist some possibility that xapian stop being in the
images. But even in that case, you could ship xapian inside your
activity bundle if you really want to use it (or lucene, or other full
text search engines).
