I and others have found serious concerns in our review of your choice of
implementation and the database integrity guarantees you make. Your options:

1. You could remove the strong claims from your documentation.

2. You could redesign NuDB so it does implement your strong guarantees.

3. Ignore or attack the feedback you've been given.

So far you appear to be following option 3. Be therefore not surprised
if nobody gives you further feedback on NuDB.
