Yeah, but as someone who spent way too much time using SDBM and GDBM it would be nice if the Berkeley DBs were removed from the core

Just a note: SDBM and GDBM are *not* Berkeley DB's (DB_File is the standard Berkeley DBM in the core). And, by the way, DB_File (and the other DBM's) are exceedingly useful tools and should stay in the core. As for DBI/DBD, I'm for a leaner core and one or more (semi) officially recognized SDK packages containing database, networking, templating, et cetera.
