Just for reference, tcerl is an linked-in driver interface for Tokyo
Cabinet (the in-process db) while Harish and I provide interfaces to
Tokyo Tyrant (the network-enabled stand-alone version of tokyo
cabinet.)  There are things that a "real" Tokyo Cabinet linked-in
driver would be able to do that Tyrant interfaces will never be able
to accomplish (e.g. iteration over all elements with any assurances
that you will actually hit all elements, etc) and it will always be
able to do it faster.  The upside to Tyrant is that you can do
everything over the network.
