Initial import of tinycdb-0.75, a very fast and simple package for
creating and reading constant data bases, a data structure introduced
by Dan J. Bernstein in his cdb package. It may be used to speed up
searches in a sequence of (key,value) pairs with very big number
of records. Example usage is indexing a big list of users - where
a search will require linear reading of a large /etc/passwd file,
and for many other tasks. It's usage/API is similar to ones found
in BerkeleyDB, gdbm and traditional *nix dbm/ndbm libraries, and
is compatible in great extent to cdb-0.75 package by Dan Bernstein.

CDB is a constant database, that is, it cannot be updated at a
runtime, only rebuilt. Rebuilding is atomic operation and is very
fast - much faster than of many other similar packages. Once created,
CDB may be queried, and a query takes very little time to complete.
