I think it should. I read the bsddb stuff in the Python manual, and barely
noticed the reference to pybsddb. Subconsciously, I assumed that it was
simply background reading, and not important for day to day use (much like
pointers to RFCs in many of the Internet modules). I certainly never
assumed that there might be functionality which wasn't documented in the
Python library reference.
