To help answer one of your questions, I'm pretty sure I heard
somewhere that del.icio.us uses Oracle Database. I don't know for
sure though. I thought it was in the mailing list archives but I
can't find it. Might have been the pre-yahoo groups mailing list....

Hi, I am interested in the del.icio.us database architecture (what
database? database scheme (de)normalized? partitioning? #records?
#read/write queries per hour? ...
I understand if del.icio.us does not want to make any of this public,
but I'm interested and it doesn't hurt to ask.
Regards,
Karel

Obviously we can't make much of this public. However, I can say that
we're mostly JDBC running on top of Access.

Just kidding. Delicious is currently a conglomeration of MySQL,
various internal Yahoo technologies, and a dash of Xapian.
