Assuming sqlite, you just let it handle them.  You have to be

I think that's one reason why it wasn't successful, but more importantly 
it wasn't pushed by the developers and was ultimately abandoned by them.

Synchronization becomes much less of an issue if you're able to attach 
the metadata to the files themselves.
