This would be more cumbersome than what I'm trying to avoid . . .

I get a half-second or so lag from hitting a db across town.  *If* livecode
were multithreaded, even weakly, i could use SQLite locks.   My tentative
solution is a slave process, so I pass off the updates to the remote db to
the slave, and "eventually" the update comes back from the slave.

If I play with the disk file, I've slowed things down even more than the
in-memory shenanigans . . .
