It's all right. I can get the guts of the abstraction from CVS or the
mod_dav 1.x codebase.

SDBM has limits on the size of values that can be stuck into the database.
See the DBLKSIZ, PBLKSIZ, and PAIRMAX defines. Languages such as Python have
bindings to GDBM but not to SDBM. User/developer familiarity. External tools.

The patch looks fine. Guess I'll have to write the layer RSN to get that
functionality back in there :-)

I'll apply the SDBM APR-ization and this patch later today. Got a couple
errands to do this afternoon.
