I don't think it's a grand plot. I just think we need to
use tdbsam as a default, and it's too late in the change
cycle to do this for 3.4. Making this change in master
means that we get more time + testing resource to make
sure the changeover goes smoothly.

Nothing more than that (from me at least).
