As the fellow doing the Sophie storage subsystem I looked into it as  
a way to store Sophie Books. It seems feasible.
Right now we have classes to store a book as a zip file, a set of  
files in a folder, and a set of files on a http server.
I had not pursed this option yet, but hearing one can't get into the  
beta will push back our timing.
