What do you mean by "state"?
What you get with "obj.__getstate__()"?

  In this case, you can indeed not compute added/deleted keys
  alone from the current and a previous state of the tree alone.
  You must also take into account the state of children...

So could you give me a little more details about what you mean? (or of course 
point me to some example/resources on the net)

Search the mailing list archive (for "zope@zope.org" or
"zope-dev@zope.org") for a post from me about "HistoryJar".

This is a speciallized ZODB connection that loads the state of objects
as it was at a given time.
In this, I do not mean "state" technically as the result of "__getstate__"
but as the complete object state. You can use such a "historical"
object in the same way as you use a "current" object (apart from
not being able to modify it). Especially, you can ask a historical
BTrees.XXBTree instance for
all its keys and compare this to all the keys of the current object.
