+Stores objects in multiple storage backends simultaneously
+with dictionary-style access, caching, and object serialization and compression.
+
+Currently supported storage backends are:
+
+* Amazon S3 Web Service
+* Berkeley Source Database
+* Memory
+* Filesystem
+* Firebird
+* FTP
+* DBM
+* Durus
+* Microsoft SQL Server
+* MySQL
+* Oracle
+* PostgreSQL
+* SQLite
+* Subversion
+* Zope Object Database (ZODB)
+
+Currently supported caching backends are:
+
+* Memory
+* Filesystem
+* Firebird
+* memcache
+* Microsoft SQL Server
+* MySQL
+* Oracle
+* PostgreSQL
+* SQLite
+
+The use of multiple backends for storage involves
+passing multiple store URIs or instances to
+multishove following the form:
+
+from multishove import MultiShove
+
+<storename> = MultiShove(<store_uri1>, <store_uri2> ..., cache=<cache_uri>)
+
+multishove implements the Python dictionary/mapping API:
+
+http://docs.python.org/lib/typesmapping.html
+
+multishove requires the shove package from:
