Looks like these two tools use entirely different data formats. Has anyone thought of defining
a common format for database dumps?

(I have an interest in this because some iOS/Android developers want to be able to preload
a canned Couchbase Lite database into their app when it’s first launched.  Currently they’d
do that by taking the SQLite database file from a database, packaging that with the app, and
copying it into place. But it’d be cleaner if that canned database were in a format that’s
easier to inspect and less likely to have versioning problems.)
