Not true. mdb_load can load multiple DBs from a single input file.
Also, I'm not sure if it's your mailer or ours, but this submission text is
riddled with corruptions.

In general I don't think including this utility into LMDB is a good idea since
it has an obvious binary dependency on BerkeleyDB. In particular, with the
change of BerkeleyDB's license to AGPL it would not be possible for anyone to
distribute any binaries for this package.
Better to just use BDB db_dump piped into mdb_load.
