Bsddb is the name of Python's module which wraps Sleepycat's Berkeley DB,
commonly abbreviated as bdb.  Bsddb is in Python and maintained by the
current developer (Greg Smith), so I assume any necessary accommodations
were made.  A quick glance as a few of the Python files in the bsddb package
didn't make it look like GPL.

Bdb's license is not GPL:
