I'm new to the list, so please forgive me if this has been covered before. I searched the archives and wasn't able to find anything, so here goes...

I'm interested in database abstraction for Python, and am wondering what people use for this. Currently I have thrown together a home-grown class that does database abstraction for MySQL and PostgreSQL for the functions I need, but I realize this is not the way to go long term. I did some google searches and it didn't seem like there was real consensus on what's the best for this in Python. The closest I could see was ADOdb for Python, but since this seems to be a rewrite of a PHP framework, I wasn't sure how good/stable/widely-used it was. Is there a "standard" for this, or is it a matter of personal preference?

Thanks, Tom
