As a word of warning, metastore's binary storage format is _not_ merge
friendly. You must not diverge or branch off this file. David has lost
interest in metastore and does not intend to fix this.

Because of this, I wrote metamonger[1] to scratch this itch and
there's a branch which restores metadata. The master branch can only
store at the moment. Patches welcome; or if I know that someone
besides me wants to use this that may be the kick in the proverbial
behind I need to continue working on this, clean up history a bit, and
merge into master.
