It'd also make sense if you didn't do a range query, right? I.e. you're
just looking for (None, None). I realize though that queries with None
do something else entirely, as they open the range.
Any lookup in a BTree is a range query -- it depends on orderability
of the keys.
Anyway, perhaps a comment should be in place specifying that None cannot
be indexed; this way it just looked surprising.
Sure. There should probably be a note that all of the keys *must*
be orderable in a way that is consistent accross processes and Python
versons. This is a far more likely gotcha.
