I phrased that poorly.  I meant that some DBMSes "have a quoting convention",
yet don't expose it in their *native* C clients APIs, which makes exposure in
the Python driver immaterial (unless the author of the Python driver were to
write his own quoting code, which would be error-prone and likely to break or
not be extended to new data types across DBMS versions).
