I thought of that, however, merging the databases themselves would still
not be possible: the 3.0 database has the flags set in many records,
which causes merge conflicts (as the 2.x database has different flag
values). So regenerating the database is necessary, anyway.
In future changes, it might be useful to have new flags with the same
values, so that such patches can be merged without conflicts in the
Python tracker <report at bugs.python.org>
