On a more detailed comparison, it turned out that the additional
features I used in my version of the DataStore API can be added
separately on the top (e.g. automatic updates with settable update
frequency, filtered "get" operation etc). In conclusion I support the
proposed DataStore API (together with the planned additions). It looks
to be a good start for the purpose it was designed for.

Best regards,
Zoltan
