Actually I wasn't just throwing out ideas.  In the case of bplustree.py
the overhead of disk IO should dominate the computation, so it might
be a pretty good solution.  Could be wrong tho.

bplustree is a classical b+tree implementation, more or less, and
it may be within a small constant factor of a C++ implementation, or
it might not.  In theory it could be.  Please try it out and correct
me.
