No, I don't think so, Berkeley DB is not a SQL database.
These classes are alrady part of PyLucene, DbDirectory is usable from python.

If you implemented a JDBCDirectory in java or python (after verifying that 
such a thing doesn't already exist for Java Lucene, it rings a bell), that 
would be great !
I recently checked in code allowing for a complete python implementations of 
store.Directory, store.Lock, store.InputStream, store.OutputStream.
