Yes. And if you read the answer to that: there is no such API.

As mentioned before, the warning confuses users. On a FSFS repository,
the warning doesn't apply. And even if the warning would clearly state
that, the user won't have any chance to see what type of repository
(s)he's accessing. So they get worried.
If they access a BDB that way, they won't get far: the next commit will
throw an error because the repository got corrupted.

Yes.

If I would always wait for an answer there, I wouldn't get far ;)
