BTW, just installing is not enough, even when it is come with Python distribution. Installing a newer version of BerkeleyDB breaks older databases due to incompatible file formats.
fwiw its possible to fix this in the bsddb code. someone willing to do the exception catching database backing-up + auto db_upgrade() work should submit a patch. (i added backing-up as its rude to auto-convert someones database for them to a version their old software can no longer read)
Automatically converting the database is a bad idea. bsddb does too much implicitly already, like installing.
