 This is a known issue for the quartz, flint, and chert database backends -
 internally a zero byte has to be encoded as two bytes to get the keys to
 sort in the desired order.

 We can't address this for these backends without breaking compatibility
 with existing databases (which this issue certainly doesn't justify
 doing), but we're already planning to eliminate this restriction for
 brass, so setting the component to that.
