If so, the version (RE25?) which removes back-bdb can rename the "hdb"
backend to "bdb", maybe leaving "hdb" as an alias to be removed later.
They are similar enough that this should not cause confusion.  slapcat -
slapadd will be required to upgrade, but that's required anyway between
release branches.

What advantages do bdb still have over hdb today?  Only that it's more
used and thus somewhat better tested?
