I'm pretty sure it was size issues.

That's a good concern.  If you could use the "normal" postgres setup
where you had one server and you connected to it via SSH (or
whatever), you'd be set, but I don't know off the top of my head
whether or not postgres' physical databases are platform independent,
same goes for sqlite -- definitely something we'd have to
