Will do ;-)

Sounds primo, and I will enjoy reading it. I wasn't sure how much logic
would be tied up with BDB, but I certainly wasn't under the illusion it was
a simple project ;-) We had much more simple problem to solve with a
virtual FS (very little of that time dimension) and the queries to that look
to be complicated enough .... however in the meantime I am happy to call
the FS API from the command line/swigs to make things happen from our
system, and to use the repository hooks to fire up PHP scripts which load
the data into another SQL database I can use for extension.

I will certainly look forward to having a pluggable DB and it is reassuring
to know that someone is working on it. However I didn't want to let that
stop me having a play with svn :-)

Awesome, Z.
