I know we and many of our commercial customers has rejected BDB 6.x because of
the change, so we've been forced to 'support' BDB 5.x.
Personally I would like to get rid of anything that has to do with BerkeleyDB,
just to get rid of this or future license questions from customers. (But
unfortunately I don't know what can reasonably replace BDB.)
