NuDB assumes that bytes written to the file system are not changed. It
doesn't verify a checksum or digest on the values. That's up to the
application. If another process corrupts the data in a database in
between when the database is opened, NuDB does not detect that (except
for visible corruption in the key file format, such as an invalid size
or offset).

This is the first I'm hearing that the "Durability" in ACID implies
protection from data corruption after the fact - please provide a
