I don't agree.  Every one of the FOSS RDBMs has a different C API so I
wouldn't expect the Python module wrapping the native APIs to be
anything but a more-or-less straight exposure of that -- with some
liberties taken to Pythonify the APIs where appropriate, e.g. PyBSDDB
has a done a very good job there.

The common API is the DB-API, although it would be nice if there were
more commonality amongst the various implementations.

I do agree that further discussion probably belongs on other lists.
