Zope does something similar to this with it's object database. HTTP
transactions are mapped to ODB transactions. Zope then "traverses" objects
according to the URL path provided. It works quite nicely.
One of the only problems is that objects that change on every request,
like hit counters, tend to bloat the database with many meaningless
historical revisions, but this has never been a huge issue.
