You might look at Wood. It's a simple object oriented database that
I wrote. It's available for anonymous FTP from cambridge.apple.com
in the file "/pub/mcl2/contrib/wood-0.6.sea.hqx". Documentation alone
is in "/pub/mcl2/contrib/wood.doc". Wood can save all Lisp objects to
disk in binary format. This includes CLOS objects, though it saves
only the slot names of classes, not their class hierarchy.
