Is anybody using this ? I think it's a better idea to provide a
dummy cursor object than having connection objects give access to
cursor methods and attributes: it makes porting applications a lot
easier. Database interfaces which do not really support cursors
could raise an exception if more than one cursor is being created.
But that's of course just my POV.
