These need to be taken upstream, but I will also need to fix db5 because
I intend to keep that version going, as the last version under SleepyCat
license. db6 has switched to the Affero GPL v3 which requires to also
offer sources when the modified software is not distributed, but used as
a service.

As long as the identifiers are not exposed, renaming them should be
safe.  I will see to that, but it will take me a few days before I get
around to it.

Thanks for the heads-up.
