I;m not sure about the reasons for your apprehension towards a DB based

However, I would like to suggest you look at the Alfresco ECMS. It is
leaps ahead of KnowledgeTree (in my opinion) in terms of its feature
sets, standards and inter-connectivity,

The previous versions had a bit of a learning curve, but I do believe
this has had focus in later releases.

The repositories are made available so that you can browse them as Samba
shares, That may address the flat file requirement. So for example, a
user can merely drop a file using the file explorer onto a share in the
"Network Neighbourhood" and this has the effect of checking a document
in and initiating workflows.
