slower than dbd used to be with a smaller repository.

I've checked out (cvs.php.net/pear) into my repo - prefectly ok.

appears to be the same as bdb

4) Reliability
In my view, 1000x better than bdb - no corrupt databases since I
installed it (very common before that)

The only downside is that backups via nfs is problematic due to the no.
of files in the data dir.
