begrudgingly yes

hmm, like sharing connections over processes?

YES, now that we are to have a new BDFL perhaps green threads are
welcome again?

Make real .autocommit a thing but please don't change the defaults....

I think I know what issue you're talking about.    This seems much
more subtle of an issue than we would normally see in a pep-249 which
is overall very terse about each point.

one positional and one named and that's it  ....Annnnndddd:

- prepared statements

I don't recall if I was for or against this being in the spec.
Seems like something that should be clarified though.
