This patch deprecates bsddb and dbhash for removal in Python 3.0.

Attached patch raises Py3k warnings rather than plain deprecation
warnings, so it looks good to me (some of the discussions on python-dev
gave the impression that may have been getting full deprecation
warnings, implying its potential removal in 2.7 as well).

Sorry if that impression was given about 2.6 deprecation. The plan was
always just for 3.0 removal since removing in 2.6 really would not be
enough time to warn users.

I have assigned to myself to apply the patch when I have time (some time
tonight).

Thanks for the review, Nick!

I was actually pretty sure the intention was to add Py3k warnings, but
the exact phrase being used in the python-dev thread was "deprecation
warnings" which made folks a little nervous.

Trunk done with r66232 and blocked on 3.0 with r66233.
