personally, i'm rather looking for existing "systems" take care of such
tasks, and would love it, if i didn't have to find a new way by myself.

this said, i don't think that in this case the diff in userland is a
good idea. 
i don't care how the underlying systems manages the changes, but i'd
really like a "tool" that allows me to just replace the resources i've
changed and leave the other ones unchanged.

as i wrote in my previous mail, i know about sqlite which is somehow
close to what i'm looking for (can take care of saving and retrieving
of resources) but i'm really not sure whether a relational model is

at some time i plan to have a look at the existing storage engines, but
this thread gave me the idea to check if there are knowledgeable around
