I view the current back-bdb2 code as just a prototype effort
and may be tossed. Lately I've come to the conclusion that
we may need to design and implement (almost from scratch) a
back-sleepy to truely take advantage of transaction, caching,
and index capabilities of the database.
It's a major project that needs getting done. It will likely
take a fair number of man months to accomplish. Hopefully we
can find individuals willing to do this work (or fund someone
else to do it).
