Interesting.  That would explain the recent Cygwin announcement of the
need to use the conversion program following the recent changes to gdbm.

So I take it that there's some benefit seen in using gdbm; presumably
related to performance?  But that for some reason it's not considered
the right choice to make it the default for Unix.  (Perhaps because
Unix people prefer to use plain text where possible, to leverage from
all those existing plain text utilities.)
