There are databases like CouchDB that appear more amenable to
distributed settings, but not sure how much.

There are Conflict-free Replicated Datatype (CRDT) that actually run
well in this setting, except..  You often want a richer datatype but the
closer or otherwise more restricted the better.  If the connection is
synchronous then you can get away with the users doing it manually
without them noticing that they're doing all the work.  If you want an
asynchronous setting, like with out mix net ideas, then you need a
smarter merge algorithm that knows about the datatypes.  It's definitely
not "say database and be done with it" like for web development.
