In 2.3.13 (I think) and newer, there is the option of using an SQL 
backend.  It hasn't been widely used and tested yet, though.

Along the lines of Simon's question, other than the fact that some of 
the Cyrus database defaults happen to be BDB, is anyone using BDB with 
Cyrus because they really want to?

Considering the state of Cyrus' interoperability with BDB and all the 
recent fixes to skiplist, would it make sense to at least not make BDB a 
default backend from now on?
