Sure, I did.  I was recapping what the purpose of the bsddb185 module is and
why its API is not likely to change.

Yup.  Use the bsddb185 module and suffer with the older API.  Note that
part of the reason the API it exposes is so feeble is that the underlying
1.85 Berkeley DB library doesn't provide anything better.  The API you've
become used to with the later bsddb module is only available because the
underlying library API is more complete.
