In Python 2.6, dbm modules othar than bsddb don't support the iterator
protocol.

>>> import dbm
>>> d = dbm.open('spam.dbm', 'c')
>>> for k in range(5): d["key%d" % k] = "value%d" % k
... 
>>> for k in d: print k, d[k]
... 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'dbm.dbm' object is not iterable

Adding iterator support would make dbm modules more convenient and
easier to use.
