These failures are both due to failures to check out 'transaction', which
is now moved to Github.

These failures are in tests of now-out-of-date BTrees.  We should just
remove such tests from the ZODB suite, now that BTrees have their own CI.

These failures are due to an oddity in the ZCML-based class protections
granted by zope.app.security to the (non-API) tree iterators in the C
BTrees code.  I assume from the fact that these tests fail, that they are
running against a BTrees package which does *not* have the C extensions
compiled.

Those iterator classes are not APIs:  they are implementation details of
the BTrees C extensions.  I speculate somebody added protections for them
to zope.app.security to work around an issue with walking
space-suit-wrapped BTrees in untrusted code (note that somehow the
corresponding TreeSets aren't protected:  go figure).

I pushed a branch of BTrees which restores the iterators *in name only*
in the pure-Python case:

  https://github.com/zopefoundation/BTrees/tree/expose_tree_iterator

Im my branch, trying to actually *use* the XXTreeITerator class in that
branch (assuming no C extensions) will raise an exception, but the ZCML
<class> declarations which name the classes should no longer raise.
