Berkeley DB in our source tree?

We're going to use Berkeley DB (`Sleepycat') for the filesystem. It
would be possible to reimplement the stuff it provides for ourselves
(locking, transactions, recovery, etc.) but I don't see any point.
It's very general, and the interfaces are done well.

So, here's my question: should I just import Berkeley DB into our
repository on a vendor branch, or should we simply tell people,
"Install Berkeley DB 3.1.4 before you build Subversion" and stay out
of it? What would folks prefer?
