This isn't a huge requirement - it's nice that the pop3proxy's test code
doesn't write anything to the disk, but that's now been achieved by losing
__del__.  I mentioned that people might want to do speculative training and
not save the results, but that can always be achieved by specifying a
temporary DB name on the command line.  The ability to forget is a nice-to-
have, not a requirement.  Quoting myself: "I'd much rather have an explicit
store() method and document the fact that storage may be pre-empted by
certain implementations."
