You could always take a look at either gnu GDBM or Oracle-Berkeley DB to see how they solved the issue. Unless that's cheating, or you want to avoid any license issues.
Those DBM libraries simply work in a contiguous memory region and write the entire database back to disk when saved. That's why everyone avoided key-value-store (NoSQL is the new buzzword) databases for over a decade. When RAM became cheap and you build a server with terabyte of RAM... the old things became new again.

By the way... let's give credit to the inventing author... Ken Thompson[^] who wrote the first DBM implementation... sometime in the late 1970's. It's not even mentioned in his wikipedia bio... I wonder if anyone will remember that in 30 years.
