[DB-SIG] API 3.0 limiting paramstyle to ['named', 'qmark'] is okay. ('format' is not desirable)

If there are only the two styles, you can tell which is expected by looking
at the parameters.  If you have a sequence, you use 'qmark', if a mapping,
you use 'named'.  Follow the example of string.format() which will accept
either keywords or positional args.  Attempting to determine the style by
scanning the SQL is expensive and not a sure thing.
