Shelve always seemed a little weird to me, so I just store pickles or
If you don't have a really large number of keys of keys, just use
db = dbhash.open(filename)
for k in db.keys():
That reads all the keys into memory, of course, so it's not ideal.
But it sounded like you have relatively few keys, and large objects.
