That's appealing but don't underestimate the amount of work that is. 
We (R-Objects and its predecessors) started implementing a p2p 
distributed, object-oriented (as in class-association-attribute), 
replicated, schema-driven, repository almost four years ago, and now 
it is basically there and working. But it took four years and several 
million in funding went into it. And we had related experience before.    (02)

but close: free for non-commercial use, source code available, 
changes allowed and do not have to be put back. www.r-objects.org
