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
repos.

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