Sounds about right to me. Of course, we knew that back-bdb's dn2id index
problem 'way back in the beginning...
and we knew that back-hdb didn't have these problems. And we've talked
dropping back-bdb in favor of back-hdb several times through the years. It
seems now is the time.
What's the overall impact to everything else code wise? "make test" will
take half the time now though.
