the bsddb module is still supported in 2.7, however only builds using db versions up to 4.8, which at least some Linux distributions ship anymore.  Proposing to update the bsddb module to pybsddb 5.3.0, which supports to build using db up to 5.3.0.

The downside is that this pybsddb version drops support to build using db 4.1 and 4.2 (requires db 4.3 as a minimum). However checking at least seven year old Ubuntu 6.10 (Hardy Heron) reveals that 4.3 is already supported by this version.

I'd like to have some input/tests how the tests do go with this patch with different db versions. please report test results into this issue.
