But no, I have *never* [knowingly] set up a repo to use BDB - even my
very first one, which this isn't... if it helps, the .svn file tree in
the repo and WC appears substantially the same as all the other working

If I need one, is there some definitive test for examining the file
trees of a repo or WC to determine its "format"?
