i have looked at the source code (C server side / Python client side), it uses
 libtdb [1] as storage back-end (a plain text format) , i think that
sqlite is better, and you can port it to other DBMS such as Postgres
or MySQL

[1] http://tdb.samba.org

But how it can be integrated in Fedora, by writing yum plug-in ?
