When I envisioned the implementation of shelving, I figured that we would
use the sql database to its best effect. Store new pristines (which is
logically just key->fulltext). Maybe create an artificial wc_id to
construct an alternate tree of ACTUAL_NODE entries where you can store node
information of the items on the shelf.

We have a database. I see no reason to fall back to messing with patch
