ovdb has historically required some porting to new versions of BerkelyDB,
although as the development pace of BerkeleyDB has stalled, it's come up
less.  buffindexed is a neat idea, but it's had a fair number of bug
reports and I'm not 100% convinced that it's reliable against various
relatively rare problems.

I think tradindexed is relatively solid (of course, I would, since I wrote
the current incarnation of it), but it's also kind of slow and it's
conceptually wrong to roll one's own database when actual database engines
