Yup, the plan is:

1. Replace (not abstract, mostly) the BDB functions.
2. See if it works properly.
3. Play around with several alternative ways to represent/access data to
see how they affect performance.
4. Tell everyone how it went.
99. Abstract the fs interface in a Subversion-consistent manner. This
will likely be performed by someone else and might be years away (?).
