Use FSFS. There are ways to corrupt a BDB database that just cannot happen with
FSFS. There is no good reason to use BDB any more, if you are just starting
from scratch. It is also possible to host an FSFS repository on a networked
filesystem (assuming your filesystem locking isn't broken)[1]. FSFS scales
better (especially after 1.5.x, with the sharding behavior).

My 2 cents


1) NOTE: I do *not* mean you can have a remote filesystem on Windows using FSFS,
at least not without much gnashing of teeth and custom configuration. The
default Windows service accounts do not have _any_ rights to remote filesystems,
so it is a pain to make this work. Just run Linux... ;-)
