I'll commit the current ntdb work, but it's not used by anything.  At
least it'll be built, and tested with 'make test', and be there for
inspection.  Library version is 0.9, giving us some wiggle room if we
need to break something.

I'll also push the dbwrap enhancements, too (dbwrap_local_open and the
API extensions which allow wider use).

I'll continue to work on the dbwrap conversion with anyone who's
interested.  All welcome to join the fun!

Here's what I've got (I'm currently debugging 'source3/printing: convert
to dbwrap.' which breaks on a full 'make test' for some weird reason):

Thanks for the thought, but don't apologize!  It's the right decision,
for the right reasons.  If I wish the universe were different, that's my
problem :)
