Is it at all possible for me to load the monolithic YAML from a database
column, as opposed to using a file load path?

I'm working on a multi-site CMS and rather than have programmers
enter each translation in CRUD fashion, I just need them to be able to
to the existing locale on the fly.

I basically want a table of locales which only have one column, to hold
YAML text you'd normally put in the locale file.

Any ideas?

You can plug different backends into Rails i18n. Not sure what the
latest and greatest is, but this should get you started:
