Have you had a look at CouchDB? It's written in erlang, which means you
don't need another runtime environment.  The API is HTTP, and you can serve
static pages directly from it should you wish, and/or you can open it up for
direct HTTP queries and updates using JSON, leaving the intelligence in the
browser as you desire.

It's the foundation for UbuntuOne's application synchronization capabilities
too. People with a local CouchDB instance could even replicate their whole
database onto their local machine, thus offloading from your servers
entirely.

Just a suggestion.

Regards,

Brian.
