You can probably use %s for any DBI module. The documentation
predicates using %s
It's possible that psycopg just happens to pass through integers as
integers, which both %d and %s will handle, but other DBIs always pass
through as strings.
So, yes, I believe it will work if you use %s ALL the time.

No. 'pyformat' means specifically using pythons %(variable)s dictionary
binding, rather than the more C-like %s array binding. It was not
intended to reference the variable types.
