[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RPM+NDB should implement ndb_dump/ndb_load/ndb_stat for database dumps. (#289)

Converting databases is painful, particularly if both forward/backward conversions are desired.

BerkeleyDB has a set of utilities to do this conversion, LMDB uses an almost identical set of utilities.

While rpmdb --importdb/--exportdb are a high performing KISS  improvement on the BDB-style dump/load, there are still needs to display key<->value pairs in human readable (i.e. not just hex/binary) format.

The LMDB licensed mdb_dump/mdb_load utilities could be swiped and modified to handle NDB pretty easily to provide a well-understood (and used by libvirt iirc) common import/export/format.
