Support for Berkeley DB (the bsddb) was removed from the standard library in Python 3 and replaced by a third-party module (bsddb3) listed in PyPI which is better able to keep up with changes in the various BDB releases.  

http://docs.python.org/py3k/whatsnew/3.0.html#library-changes
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/bsddb3/

What would be the reason for bringing back a dependency on BDB into the standard library?  Wouldn't this better be handled in the standalone pysqlite package?
