What about this way ?
Maybe mapscript + making small C programs that use shp lib in such way that
1. query map with mapscript to return ID, if not capable by mapscript, write
Small C prog using shplib
2. retrieve, show & update using php4 DBASE function.
This looks promising and not so difficult, just have to be careful because
php4 doesn't support DBASE locking.
