I haven't looked carefully at DirectoryStorage, so I don't have much
to say about it. I've been very happy with FileStorage performance
and reliability, so I haven't paid much attention to alternate storage
I'm not sure what you mean by simplifying synchronization. Can you
I'd still recommend starting with FileStorage and moving to something
else after you can more clearly identify requirements for the storage.
