I see, and I remember reading about it.
But, what will happen if I "make install" a skiplist version onto an older BDB deployment
with running users? Will I need to run a reconstruct? Will I need to get rid of older bdb files
manually? Also, do you think I will find any benefits by using skiplist on NFS instead of BDB?
Thanx again
