sigh whilst i love LMDB it is so low-level that we would be asking for
trouble, becoming full-time bugzilla developers instead of SoC HDL

writing is done by writing to the git repository through the command
"be".  a REST API on top of that - alongside appropriate permissions
control - *may* produce what is required.

it has the advantage of then being locally installable followed by a
simple "git push" to sync up the bugs.  the modifications made by the
command "be" to the database (in a subdirectory .be) are
*deliberately* designed to be conflict-free by way of always using
UUIDs (128-bit random IDs) for all files.  no deletions are ever
carried out.
