text storage: shelve vs anydbm vs ?

Rather newbie question here.

My current project will build a database of solutions to a topology
problem, which I'll eventually put (readonly) on my website. The
entries are text of varying length. The keys are likewise of varying
length.

Is anydbm the way to go? Is shelve anything more than a wrapper for it?
Should I be looking at something else?

If MySQL is available on your website it is both
fast and stable. It is also very easy to call
from Python. Lots of ISPs also have admin
interfaces that make it easy to make ad-hoc
changes via web interface. Normally it is free.
If you are self hosted, the same is true.
