I disagree. Using SQLite in a production server environment causes
nothing but pain (at least to my experience). I would assume using some
DVCS for storing revisions should be the most natural way to do so, and
I would hope that there's some webapp libraries availble to show diff's
etc, though I don't have any direct experience with this.

Oh, and I personally don't see the need to have spyce running on a
"cloud platform" (depending on what you mean by that, of course). If you
have one single server, then you don't need all the
distributed-whatsoever and can concentrate on having everything on one

Just my 2ct.
