Ah, great.

There's one thing on my list which I wanted to investigate, but it
looks more complex than I imagined: Can Berkeley DB database
environments be shared across different user IDs? This seems to be a
common usage case for Subversion, but I'm not sure if it's actually
supported by BDB.

For example, if the low-level mutexes that are shared between
processes are implemented using signals, this scenario doesn't work
because a process that releases a mutex might not have the necessary
privileges to send a signal to another process which is waiting for
this mutex.
