You know, this is actually a fair offer. I'd be willing to help with
this, because anything we could come up with can be done better inside BDB.

Which reminds me of another problem that Subversion has with BDB; this
one is specific to HP-UX, and it prevents a Subversion server (with BDB
back-end) from running on that platform. Sleepycat even acknowledges it
in http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/ref/build_unix/hpux.html, section 4.
Now I'd be the first to admit that this is a misfeature of HP-UX, but we
need to live with it. The obvious solution is to maintain a cache of
mmapped files, and this is another thing that BDB can do much better
than Subversion.
