* various ways to access databases (depending on client and server
platforms) and their differences
* comparisons of implemented DB API extensions and data types
* explain typical gotchas like dealing with Unicode data,
handling unknown data types (e.g. user types), problems
during connect and ways to work around them (all of these
are usually DB API and database specific), decimal vs. Python
