I believe that using BDB will screw your repository very fast via NFS
mounted repositories. I'm not sure you can get away with it using FSFS,
which is an interesting question.

But seriously, why use the NetApp? Given that local disk is less than $200
for a 250 Gig IDE or even SATA disk, why bother with the NetApp for this?
