revprops.db consists of a single table; perhaps we could take advantage of
this to duplicate it "by hand", until the sqlite API has stabilized?

(IOW, perhaps the hotcopy logic could be tailored to revprops.db, without
having logic generic enough to be able to duplicate any live sqlite DB)

To delete the DB, ones needs to know that it's corrupted. Are we even
sure that, if corruption occurs, it will be detected?
