   there don't actually seem to be any really compelling reasons to use
   BDB. If FSFS becomes the default, in what circumstances would
   someone want to convert their repository back to BDB?

   I guess playing the devils advocate here, if FSFS is mature enough
   now, and BDB offers few advantages and has several disadvantages,
   why continue to support BDB?
