[DB-SIG] PEP version of DB-API

One other issue: the DB API spec will have to have an editor to
keep it in a sane state and prevent too much convolution to pile
up.

For the 1.0 -> 2.0 cycle this has helped much in keeping obscure
features out of the spec. I suspect the next revision to have a
need for such action too ;-)

The general guideline for the DB API is to keep it flexible enough
for interface authors to add their own extensions and OTOH to not
make it too complicated for the authors to follow it (i.e. it shouldn't
prevent authors from starting to code interfaces). Also, it has
to assure that even low-tech databases can be DB API compliant to
a certain degree.
