it can be. i *only* worked at the last revision of the dbapi when some
parts where clarified and there were some small additions. and i don't
feel protective. :) maybe people that have contributed much more than me
feel that forcing tens of developers to upgrade adapters to a new api is
a bad thing.

my oppinion is that the part of the dbapi related to typecasts is
flacky. it does not even mandate that it should be possible to re-insert
an object coming from the db (for example an mx.DateTime wrapper). i
don't care if the dbapi does not specify what kind of object should
represent a date, but i care when it does not even tell what the
properties of such an object are.
