I agree.  I note that while many things targeted as to be released 
with 2.1 seem at a good poing, back-bdb looks still a bit behind.
I'm afraid I won't be able to give architectural support to its 
development so I'm not in a good position to judge the excellent 
work other people are doing at it; however we might consider
keeping back-ldbm around (and updated) for a while, even for a 
pre-release (call it alpha, or whatever).  In fact I note that
the new stuff (I'm thinking about DN handling and UTF-8, some
logging issues and more) may still need some tuning about small 
defects that could be hidden by the rapid development and the 
inevitable problems of back-bdb.
