That's a no-op: you might as well just write 'pass' here.

If you want to load the btree item into cache, you need to do

If you ever get an empty btree, you'll get an UnboundLocalError: 'i' here.

Drop the enumerate() trick and just use len(btree), it's efficient.

Every thread has its own in-memory ZODB object cache, but if you have
configured a persistent ZEO client cache, it should help.
