per definition the actual PostgreSQL driver shall be able to access
also ancient versions of PostgreSQL; and you should also be able to
profit from at least some of the bugfixes within the PostgreSQL
connection libraries of the last oneandahalf decade.

So: I recommend to you to go with the younges psycopg2 PostgreSQL driver.

I also offer persuasion services to help people motivate themselfs,
i.e. to upgrade PostgreSQL.
