If you submit the patch to the python project there's less dependance
on me to check it and commit it.  I suggest just including the pybsddb
repository diffs as a second file in the patch and email the pybsddb-users
mailing list afterwards pointing to it.

If a patch is submitted to pybsddb; i'll usually notice and do the right
thing, but many less eyes watch that patch manager.  The pybsddb-users
email is a nice headsup because i read that low volume list more often
than python-dev.
