I don't understand whay you want.  BDB does not store the base revision
in the txn, it stores the base node-revision-id instead.  Revisions
usually map 1:1 to the base node-revision-ids but the editor drive
"begin_txn, commit" breaks this because it creates a revision that
shares the base node-revision-id with the previous revision.  My patch
makes the mapping 1:1 so storing the node-revision-id works.

If you expect a patch that causes BDB to change the txn storage on disk
to include the base revision (or instead of the base node-revision-id?)
then you will have to explain why that is better.
