In fact, bsddb as packages in core Python has rarely been in good shape.
Has anyone actually considered that bsddb might do better if
maintained strictly as an external package? That would make it easier
for the any maintainers to release updates, and removes a source of
frustration for users who either don't need it or would rather wait
for a happier version.
I think this is worth considering. I vaguely recall that the bsddb
module was maintained before it was incorporated into the core Python
