Actually, some guidance would be nice here.

Is this code (_bsddb.c) ever expected to again build under pre-trunk
versions of Python, or can I remove the old thread-state management code?

ie, should my changes be or the style:

// new 1 line of code
// existing many lines of code

Or just stick with the new code?
