Ok, I'll try to add a Python module named dbi that interfaces to
the values defined in mxODBC in just that way, if that's what
you are missing [...provided I find time to do so].
I've put that question up before: is there the one and only
dbi module that everybody should use, or is this just a
naming + content convention that everybody agreed on ?
Side note: For ODBC the type information given by the dbi
module is not needed.
