DBM-style interface to a directory.

Each key is stored as a single file. This is not expected to be very fast or efficient, but it's good for easy debugging.

DirDBMs are *not* thread-safe, they should only be accessed by one thread at a time.

No files should be placed in the working directory of a DirDBM save those created by the DirDBM itself!
