Hi Diego,

I just had a similar question from Raul. I replied:

Work has been done on storing different parts of collections in
databases of various types (MySQL, sqlite). But as far as I know, they
are either for very specific features or still experimental. I know of
some MySQL work being done which is probably something close to what you
are after, but unfortunately it is still in deveopment. So unfortunately
there is no easy way to do what you ask. You could roll a custom
solution, or wait for progress on the MySQL feature. Sorry for the bad
news!

Cheers,
Oran.
