Using that logic I prefer just getting rid of Windows to stop having these
problems.  That'd solve the ssl applink issue and msi installer building
issue as well. =P

My opinion on bsddb as a standard library module is based mostly on "its

thought people piped up saying they liked batteries being included,
including bsddb and sqlite, but I don't have a handy reference to that email
