Subject A small point about dbm

I've just been reading my man page on ndbm, and it makes it quite clear that
it can't be used in a multi-user environment. I quote; "There are no interlocks
and no reliable cache flushing; thus concurrent updating and reading is risky."

At least, it can't be used without some kind of wrapper.
