Well, why add an extra layer between the app and the file 
system when it does not provide any required functionality? 
(the key feature of mysql for this application is indexed 
lookups, which reiserfs etc provide -- using the same 
sort of algorithms databases use). The more complexity 
there is, the more likely it is to fail or require extra 
maintenance. You can also use familiar unix tools to 
view, modify or report the data, without having to 
learn mysql-specific tools.
