Well, it's the same thing really. If the platform does have a database, the
fallback will not be used.
Of course, there is the case of the database existing on the platform
normally, but somebody for some reason deleting the files, but I don't
think that case deserves an error message.

I also expect that most platform distributions, such as for Ubuntu, will
not include the fallback database, as it will never be used. I'll add
something about that and that we need to raise an error of some sort (any
opinions on what?) if no database is found at all.
