Storing a lot of little files

I'm just brainstorming here, but...
# I need to store a lot (hundreds of millions) of very little files (from 8 bytes
# to 50K) in my filesystem.
# What's the best way to optimize it?
What about not using a file system at all, but a database that maps
file names to contents? I'm not sure how well dbm(3) scales, or other
similar "simple" databases, but it might prove workable.
