CFEngine is a similar project that would undoubtedly benefit from the
use of MDB - it's a lightweight, C program, to apply configuration
automatically to many servers across many operating systems and
architectures. They have use BerkeleyDB in the past, but abandoned it
for TokyoCabinet, although I know not all users are happy about that...
source implementation of the TokyoCabinet usage.
Interesting. It would be a pretty simple adaptation, but I don't see any API
for setting database-specific options. Being able to configure mapsize is
essential; being able to configure maxreaders is often necessary too.
