What's wrong with using a DB-API module like pyPgSQL or psycopg, or even
PyGreSQL's pgdb module? Does pgsource offer anything that the DB-API interface
doesn't, or that cannot be easily accomplished using the DB-API interface?

Btw. if you want to use PyGreSQL, I'd recommend to get the latest one from the
PostgreSQL folks, for example from the PostgreSQL 7.2.2 source tree. That's
where it is maintained nowadays.
