Brrrr.  Running a Berkeley backend is already soooooo much slower than
running from a dict.  I didn't really notice that until the SoBig worm turds
starting swamping my inbox, but after a few days of that I switched back to
using a pickled dict.  Adding a lock around each stinkin' access is a good
way to soak up excess cycles, anyway <wink>.
