whiskey db backend

After playing around with it and reading the specs, yaml is not the right tool for the job. It's too hard to have multiple attributes for the same key (ie, colours: grey, blue, green) and even harder to parse that back out and search it. Some sort of nosql db seems to be what I'm looking for, and mongodb seems to be the friendlier of the python-supported nosql dbs out there. So... scratch the yaml stuff (until it comes time for config files, that's still a good idea), mongodb is going to be the db backend. And I should have some working, prealpha code going up on launchpad soon. No promises though, my work hours have expanded (yay money, boo exhaustion) so it's tough to get anything done but work, chugging coffee, and sleeping. But I'm trying. :)
