Seems to be working just fine, and now I can pretend that my MetaRows are
dictionaries as well.  The only feature that disappeared as far as I can
see is that you can now do:

obj = db_row.MetaRow(('a','b','c'))((1,2,3))

obj['doesnotexist'] = 5
obj.fields.doesnotexist = 6

Without errors.

I was able to fix the first one myself, but the fields-version is a bit
over my head I'm afraid.

BTW:  This applies to the python version, not tried installing the C version
