Anybody know anything about long term seed storage for protected germination?

I swap seeds with collaborators in climates that are radically different than mine. That is where I get most of my varieties that are not typically grown around here. Okra, cowpeas, tepary beans, lagenaria squash, runner beans, mixta squash, etc... My favorites are the landraces, because even though 90% of what I receive might fail, there is often enough diversity in a landrace that something will eke out a meager existence and reproduce. By about the 3rd to 5th year I can usually grow the crop very well.
