In its current state (early alpha), pypg does not support Unix sockets
or connection strings. Not that it can't. Just that I didn't code or
test these features yet.
You may connect like so:
con = pypg.connect(host='localhost', database='mydb', user='uname',
# do stuff
Also note that as a requirement of PyGreSQL, you need mxdatetime. I'll
probably change that to the standard library datetime module.
Thanks for trying it out and I appreciate your feedback.
