Alright. It seems someone <wink> already made  backward-incompatible changes
to _bsddb.c (adding Py_ssize_t use), and various other things were fixed,
too, so I just went ahead and checked in a bunch of small fixes. I'm not
done yet, though. After I am done (which might be a while still, but
hopefully before alpha1), I'll fix backward compatibility and send in a
patch to the pybsddb project :)
