This is actually a pretty interesting subject, and while I can't help you
with any of it as I have no experience (I have tried KiokuDB once for a
project I was working on, but found that it's too young for my purposes,
from the same reason as you - searching and sorting is next to impossible).

Anyway, I hope this subject gets more attention, as the possibilities are
