Does anybody forsee any problem with switching the driver to use gnu's
dbm package, over the standard unix package?  The reason for this switch
is that there are a few os's which don't implement ndbm right, or buggy
(such as solaris), and centralizing on a readily available and free
package may help out some people...

(but it does mean more hassle in getting the driver off the ground)
