Keith offered to make a one-time lobotomy of the DB 2.x code to trim
it down to just the 1.85 API, with a standard Berkeley-style license.
We discussed this for a while, but determined that:

1) exchanging one unmaintained database package for another was not a
particularly useful tradeoff, and

2) the file-format changes would make this sort of change exceedingly
painful to our users.

For these reasons, we said ``thanks but no thanks''.
