Yeah and I didn't want to run DBI :) Actually you could also do this
with the Gettext plugin:

  msgid "an.abstract.id"
  msgstr "Hello there [_1]"

  $c->loc("an.abstract.id", "your name here");

So you can coerce most backends to accept the sort of stuff I did. I
just wanted something with a simple tree-structure hash. I also have a
backend for it already at Translatewiki (http://translatewiki.net/)
which is a plus.
