Re: MDB name

Quick answer:  Don't know.  Longer:

It'd be nice to do if that would avoid most nameclashes, but as Michael
says, <letter>db will clash.  E.g. I thought of sdb (single-level store)
or odb (Openldap's DB).  But they clash with OpenOffice databases which
is perhaps worse than with Microsoft stuff.

.mmdb (Memory Mapped DB) seems mostly unused, but perhaps 4-letter .exts
still remain messier than clashes with other applications' .exts.
