Restoring a dumpdb file is a bit of a pain as you end up having to
wrap it in a bit of python that mays it look like an object and
marshalling that to disk.  Not a big pain to be sure, but more pain
than you get with configdb.  Using configdb gets a dumpt of the DB
which can be re-imported by the same tool to re-create to state of
the DB. 

Quite nice.
