You can always try doing a subtree rename. If it's back-hdb, it will work.
If it's back-bdb, you will get an error message.

Probably some of both. The rewritten cache code made a lot of operations more
efficient, and that code is common to both. The back-hdb dn2id layout is
also more efficient for updates.

There's some question about the ultimate fate of back-bdb and back-hdb.
Eventually I'd like to see back-bdb replaced by back-hdb. As such, the
question will be moot. So far back-hdb has been faster on all my tests,
but I haven't seen its performance in a really large database under
heavy load.
