Where can one get the abovementioned "single dbi module"?
I am in a process of writing a postgres db_module (in pure python, currently
runs on both linux and win32, and when Mac version 1.5 is out with its
improved struct module I will be able to make it run on Macs as well) and
I'm also very interested in such a beast.
Until now I have been unable to find the dbi module anywhere.
In fact I have'nt even understood if dbi is supposed to be a submodule of my
dbmodule (like os.path) or a module that is imported separately.

Once more, I would very much want to learn where to get the dbi module.
Until now I was under an impression that such a module existed only
theoretically (in docs) and that everybody should roll his own. That
approach of course would produce a lots of incompatible exceptions all
called dbi.integrityError ;(
