RDF! (rdf, rdf, rdf, ...) http://www.w3.org/RDF/

Full disclosure: You may want to take this with a pinch of salt due to
favourite hammer syndrome; I currently justify my existence by developing
a large-scale (GPL'd of course) RDF server.

Good points:

* this is exactly the kind of thing RDF is designed for
* nice query syntax (like SQL but better)
* very fashionable
* interoperability (metadata can be used, and partly understood, by other
tools because RDF has inherent semantics)

Bad points:

* RDF/XML syntax is horrific (but you hardly ever deal with it)
* not famialiar to people who know LAMP systems
* a bit more resource intensive than PHP+MySQL
* RDF tools not as mature as relational databases

You wouldn't want to use RDF for things like user comments and reviews,
but its ideal for metadata-y things.

I could help by providing things like web form -> RDF/XML CGI scripts and
RDF knowledge-base hosting for betas.
