I would argue that using put and get is fine, if all you have is a
simple process that acts as a database.  It essentially give you a
hash table, much like ETS (one of the things I really like about Perl
and Python is that hash tables are mindlessly simple to use).  But you
don't want to mix puts and gets in with general purpose processing,
for the reasons others have already stated.
