Rather than re-writing dets, I would go with something like Tokyo
Tyrant, build on a suitable erlang wrapper (like
http://github.com/mallipeddi/tora), and perhaps put something like
my sext library on top
To match dets, I'd like to see some administrative code around the
creation and opening of Tyrant tables, including the ability to
"repair" the data from the transaction log. Seems doable, though.
