I'll do the NDR conversion and repost.

Just so that everything is out in the open, I should mention that we
(SUSE) currently ship a distribution with this database version, so
any changes to the on-disk format will require a patch on our side to
handle version upgrades, hence the extra test time needed, etc.

Nothing too surprising - karma giving me slap on the wrist for not
putting in the effort to get this stuff upstream first ;)

Cheers, David
