What makes SQLite-only a non-starter (I don't see how this relates to
Twisted version, either)?

If that's really the case, then you can look at Storm, which has a lot
in common with Axiom, but supports PostgreSQL and MySQL and various other
things (as well as SQLite).

Indeed. :)  I think making it possible isn't very much work.  You just need
to insinuate guard into the resource hierarchy and then make the resource
that you have the avatar for the anonymous user.  As developers have
interest and time, they can create non-anonymous avatars with functionality
that should be restrict and use various flags to disable functionality for
the anonymous user.
