That's a great idea, and I wish more projects had that kind of tool.
One question, though. I haven't looked, but is it possible to dump
the ldb to a text file, and then import that text file back into the
ldb? That would allow other scripts to root through the DB via text,
and would also give admins a "warm and fuzzy" feeling that the DB
could be backed up in a format humans can understand.
