[DB-SIG] SQLAlchemy and py-postgresql?

the 0.6 branch of SQLA supports Python 3K and also pg8000/psycopg2 for  
Postgres access.    Adding py-postgresql would be a simple drop-in  
procedure, as you only need to specify those behaviors of py- 
postgresql which diverge from that of a "vanilla" DBAPI - for example,  
heres the pg8000 driver which is about 50 lines of code:  http://www.sqlalchemy.org/trac/browser/sqlalchemy/branches/rel_0_6/lib/sqlalchemy/dialects/postgres/pg8000.py 

We are hoping to merge 0.6 to trunk sometime over the summer.   More  
contributors on this branch (read: people who can run unit tests for  
different backends and python environments) will help us get there
