Hi rusty, id tdb2 supposed to be API compatible ?
(I guess not).

If not wouldn't it make sense to rename functions to use the prefix
tdb2_ so that if you combine 2 libraries that use the 2 tdb versions at
the same time you don't get nasty name conflicts ? (It would also allow
slow adoption within the samba source code).
