Pleased to meet you, Gregory.

As I'm sure you're aware if you've been lurking for any significant
amount of time, the general sense around here is that Berkeley DB
works wonderfully as long as you play by the rules. Unfortunately,
the rules are somewhat restrictive (but in ways that Subversion itself
could alleviate). And then there is the occasional report by someone
who swears up and down they've played by all the rules and still their
BDB-backed repositories are getting trashed.

At any rate, a close(r) partnership between the Sleepycat folks and
our community here can be nothing short of a good thing, so on behalf
of all the developers here, "Welcome."
