Storing everything in one dbfile is a bad idea. When that dbfile dies,
everything dies with it.
I would rather be able to track external objects like .desktop files
than store them in one big database.

I've never corrupted an mbox file but it could happen. I always thought
a BDB or Sqlite would have been better but those can get ripped too.
