Since our discussion here about a dbapi2 wrapper, Peter Hunt and I have 
been working on it.  We have it mostly working with the ability to work 
with Python datetime and mx.DateTime types and changeable paramstyles. 
We have been discussing names and are leaning on dal, an acronym for 
Database Abstraction Layer.  This package will have a subpackage named 
dbapi that will contain all of our current work.  Future work outside of 
the dbapi wrapper scope will reside in other packages within dal.

I'm posting here to get opinions/suggestions about these naming 
conventions so that we can identify any problems that may arise from it. 
  We would appreciate your opinions and suggestions.
