When faced with these requirements, I'd use an LDAP directory for the
on-disk storage.  There are any number of roll-you-own solutions but for
a commercial (read "real world") application it's hard to beat LDAP.

The eldap application will get you going.  Should you require a polyglot
solution you'll find there are few languages that can't handle LDAP.
