So I guess it's hard to help with such a large problem here, with
little specific questions.

If I were in your position I would ignore the migration phase for the
time being, and assume there will be ways to do it later.

Then, with some test data you should recreate what you're trying to do
and test it.  I guess you will have questions about mulit-db support
and sharding, etc, but searching back through this mailing list is
normally really helpful when the docs fail you.

It sounds like you have the sharding problem solved though, as your
"sub databases" (I don't really know what that means), are effectively
shards already.

Xapian is very flexible, so from what you've said I think it will all
be possible.  It's really hard to give any more help without getting
involved properly in your project, or without you breaking it down in
to smaller questions about any problems you've found.
