Classic "Make vs Buy" decision. If you already own a suitable
database, and just need to wire the server into its interface,
that's probably not too hard. If on the other hand, you think
that you would save money be re-implementing the BerkeleyDB
functionality yourself, then you are likely to be disappointed.
