I'm missing why a db editor would be necessary for mounting a fs and/or loading
the db under some other OS.  MMh... yes, a db editor COULD be used to make a db
useable under other OS, if it's too big, but if the server can't load up a db
because of memory, how is an editor gonna load it up?  Might as well just
load a new core in a server that has enough memory, edit it, dump it, and
use move it over.
