I forget whether it was OtherBill or myself, but one of us pushed for
exporting sdbm explicitly [so it is present in the public dir]. Personally,
I'm quite cool with it being namespace protected, if that's what you're

apr_dbm is working well enough, that I think it would also be reasonable to
keep sdbm private. (but still namespace protected because the symbol names
"leak" from the library)

Were you after a particular result?
