I have now implemented this. PA git can now use either gdbm or tdb as
database backend. The latter is the default.
When distributions package the upcoming PA 0.9.16 they should replace
the gdbm dependency by a tdb dependency, unless they care about the
contents of the state database. Usually this however pretty boring
information, so I'd just ignore this issue, and just start anew with
the tdb database. That's at least what I will be doing Fedora.
