I think implementing as much of the bsddb interface as you can is fine.  I
agree people used first, next, last, etc and having them present is a good
idea.  My initial aim was to get a replacement for use with shelve.  Its
limitations shouldn't deter people from extending it (or the other dbm.*
modules) in other ways.

Even if all the modules aren't going to be widely cross-platform I see no
reason they can't strive to be more-or-less API-compatible.
