I see no reason _not_ to use it if the use case fits perfectly. In the 
end there are other similar database-like systems in 9 context, for 
example factotum and inferno registry.

For simpler databases plain text files with a specific format are often 
good enough. Ndb databases have the benefit that you can just use ndb 
programs for querying, which works great using a shell script.
