Hi everybody,

I wonder if there would be interest in a commercial database
interface offering that allows you to connect to just about
any database on many different platforms from Python using
a DB API compatible interface.

The idea is that mxODBC gets statically linked to one of the well-
kown ODBC driver kits which then connects directly to all
supported database backends. Setup would be simple, since the
packages would ship as linked binaries. What's even better is that
the price for the combined package would be lower than for
both packages (mxODBC and the driver kit) together.

Would this offer be well accepted ? What's your general
attitude towards commercial offerings related to datbase
interfacing in Python Space ?
