[IronPython] DB-API for IronPython update

I reorganized DB-API for IronPython codes a lot.

It is now located under the separate directory, besides lib:

connect()-compatible wrappers for MySQLdb, psycopg, and sqlite are now
moved to their own files. connect() is now a module-level function,
not a static method, and this makes importing them exactly like their
CPython equivalents.

dbapi.py now provides generic_connect() function:

def generic_connect(assembly, typename, data)
"assembly" is a string, corresponding to DBProviderAssembly key in AppSettings.
"typename" is a string, corresponding to DBConnectionType key in AppSettings.
"data" is either a string, corresponding to DBConnectionString key in
AppSettings, or a dictionary, which can be passed to
DbConnectionStringBuilder to build the final connection string.
This function returns a Python DB-API specification compliant Connection object.

For an example how to use this generic interface, have a look at this example:
