We already disallow use of 4.3 due to its instability, so 4.4 would be the minimum.

What's the best BerkeleyDB version to use with OpenLDAP 2.3 anyway?

From my testing, currently it is 4.2.52+patches. However, testing with the
pre-releases from Sleepycat of 4.6 indicated it was faster than 4.2.52 across the board. Both 4.4 and 4.5 come in slower than 4.2 and 4.6 in my testing. So from a throughput (read & write) standpoint, 4.2 is what I've found to be the "best" until 4.6 came along.
