I'm curious what level of locking support is necessary, since AFS
supports file locking but not byte ranges. Just a point of curiosity,
though.

I'm also curious what index we're using sqlite for. The patches being
circulated look like they're against the trunk, but the sqlite index I
remember being discussed was for the merge-tracking branch.

No one's required to satisfy my curiosity, of course; these are just
places I've fallen behind on following Subversion development.

No, BDB memory-maps the environment and does pthreads-type locking in
the memory-mapped space. That's nigh impossible to make work over a
network filesystem.
