Unfortunately, the sleepycat documentation is no longer being maintained
for 4.1 (in fact, I can't find it)... all you can find from their
website is for 4.2.  So, it's very hard not to "wander off in the fog"
since all Sleepycat seems to offer is fog... they do NOT make it clear
that you are looking at 4.2 documentation that does NOT apply to 4.1.

And how long does something have to be in the FAQ-o-Matic before google
gets back to re-index that URL (hint, it ain't instantaneous)???  Last I
heard, google was on a thirty day cycle and I'm not sure whether
google's algorithm is scalable enough to keep up with the expansion rate
of the web.  Bottom line, the FAQ-o-Matic really should have it's own
decent search (so should the mailinglist archives, but that's another
can of worms).
