BackupDB is completely useless since you'd want to use it when you cannot open a connection, but we don't return a connection when you cannot open this.  Requesting blocking since this blocks a firefox3 blocker (bug 386768)

Consumers of this API will need to be updated.

So this changes our behavior a little bit.  We've always had the connectionReady attribute, but never really advocated it's use.  Now we'll depend on it, so consumers should check if the connection is ready before using it.  If it isn't ready, they should assume the database is corrupted, back it up (if they want to), and start over.

This is a late api change, but I think we need it for a method like backupDB to work effectively.

Looks fine, but can you add some more documentation suggesting a backup if the database connection failed?  Just so that people have an idea of what they could do if the database open fails.
