Adding a 1.8Mb blob doesn't seem like a big problem to me, but if we're
going to end up with more historic databases (which seems likely) then I
agree it makes sense to put that data into a separate repository.

Please note that we already have some old database data in the tree, in
testdata/ - old Samba 3 database files that are used by the s3upgrade
tests in Samba 4.
