Small sorted key/value database

SkipDB is transactional, sorted key/value pair database. It is similar to BerkelyDB/Sleepycat but based on skip lists, which makes it smaller (~1600 lines of database code), simpler, and faster (appears to be ~4x as fast as SleepyCat for individual transactional updates).
