It's easy this time.  BTW, I agree your new check is the right thing to do!
If another case like this pops up, though, we/you should probably add a
section to the PEP explaining what to do about it.

The former:  the pybsddb project still exists and is used with older
versions of Python.  Barry mumbled something today at the office about
wanting to keep the C code in synch.

Yes, that would be great.
