Ok no he said specifically that W Richard Stevens never wrote a competeing
db4 bugfix to db. I boldly claimed he wrote a faster version lightweight
that solves the bug. Which can be proven laboriously but I thought
I might be able to bluster my way through. If it has to be done
I will do it. Run the tests again. The headers can be exanded to
make life easier and more configurable library use. I am also interested
in this. I just have a W. Richard Stevens bee in my bonnet. Leave it just
as a generally facetious comment thats fine i will keep the source
myself and if it ever get attention thats good.

I believe it should be moved out of pkgsrc but not sleepycat oracle db4.
It should be the above mentioned method. That is my argument. oracle db4 is
GPL i want db4 back under BSD license GNU have nothing to do with it.
Oracle are my problem not NetBSD. The opportunity lies with the db4 version
provided by W Richard Stevens. As you know a name in better standing.
