To me the partition is the concept that the core knows. The core knows
nothing about stores. We also define partitions in the configuration,
not stores.

This is how I understand the architecture:

1. The core defines the Partition interface

2. XDBM provides an abstract implemementation of the Partition interface
and additionally defines the Store interface and search engine.

3. The JDBM partition is a concrete implementation of the XDBM
partition. It contains a Store implementation because this is forced by
