Yeah. It sounds like a great choice to consider It's
still in updating. Would we proceed on this?

Anyway, will play around it this week and see if any concerns.

This is a good discussion.

I agree with Kai, having a good and stable backend / database is critical to this project’s
future.  OTOH Emmanuel’s point that we’re open source (volunteers) is an obvious inhibiting

So, do we have SWAG’s for the number of hours required for both approaches, i.e. apacheds
w/ LMDB or Mavibot?

If we can have an apacheds & lmdb release in a few weeks, where mavibot might take many
months, it might be worth a shot.  Otherwise we should stay the course and not get sidetracked.

(my two cents)
