Minimal.  My boss asked if we could try to get away from BDB and move to 
something like SQlite.  I dusted off an old SQL patch that I wrote while 
working for my old employer and ported it to the 2.3 code.  We set it up 
on a test machine and threw a couple of low volume users on it and the 
campus didn't burn down.  We haven't done any kind of load testing or 
performance testing yet.  That's why its listed as experimental -- use 
at your own risk.
