How about XML? It's just 'binish' enough to keep newbies from mucking it,
but is still parsable.
Also, I liked the suggestion of multiple methods -- i.e. if the local data
is not present, the server data is used.
I'm presently using a system from Synchronicity (EDAcentric) that uses
'turd' directories, but is not at all upset if the data is removed -- it
just recreates it from the server data.
