The BDB libraries work on a large variety of platforms, the BDB
database files are architecture independent and can be moved between
machines with different architectures.  It's only the BDB environment
files that are machine specific, is that a significant problem?

Are SQL databases human readable?  I always assumed that one used a
front-end query tool, although I do admit that those tools are much
more user friendly than BDB's db_dump.
