Yes, I have put large objects into BerkeleyDB before and it seemed to
work fine.  You could rig something up yourself with mmap'ed files, but
it's really hard to beat BerkeleyDB on performance.

I've never used Tugela, so I can't vouch for how well it handles this.
However, backing probably gives it a pretty good
shakedown.  I'd say it's worth trying at least.
