Thank you for your suggestion.
From what I can tell, Storable is at least twice as fast as the XML-method I was using and I don't have to import any more large XML modules into my web app namespace, either. I like it.
Only one question now remains: is storable safe in terms of cross-platform (i.e. Linux to Mac OS X) and cross-architecture (i.e. 32-bit and 64-bit)?
I didn't see anything in the Storable POD that would indicate otherwise but I was just wondering if you knew off the top of your head.
Thing is, I'm going to want to generate the "storable" file on a 32-bit Linux server and use it on 64-bit Linux servers and Mac OS X machines.
