Log Message:
Removed the Berkeley DB storage from the Zope (and ZODB 3) repository.
The storage was added to these repositories hoping that that would
encourage people to test it. The storage is not (yet) usable in
production due to Berkeley DB log handling problems.  The storage is
a constant source of irritation due to errors in implicit algorithms
to decide whether to build BDB extensions when building Python and 
due to implicit algorithms used to decide whether the BDB extension
was suitable for use by the storage when running tests.  The BDB
storage tests are also rather time consuming.

The final straw was the recent ZODB change that caused many BDB
storage tests to fail. :(
