I wasn't suggesting taking the discussion off-list -- just that
the archives are a good place to start.  Without being too
cynical, most of the current discussion has been raised
before, discussed, and in most cases found to be lacking
for a general consensus API (like DB-API).  After all,
there isn't really much else to discuss on the DB-SIG
mailing list.
