BTree Implementation Progress Report Part 4

BTree scans are now available as well. This means that the BTree implementation is feature complete, although, there are still some areas that need more work.

For the rest of November, I am going to concentrate on improving the code, refactoring bits that I don't like, updating documentation, and generally cleaning up the code. All this in preparation for a release of the code towards the end of the month.

From December onwards, work can start on the remaining bits in the Data Manager layer of SimpleDBM, i.e, tables. I have not yet decided whether knowledge about data types should be part of this layer or whether it is best left to a higher-level layer. I am tempted to keep the data layer as low level as possible; this will make it more reusable.
