If you just want to do simple queries, there is no need to upgrade. I
have used both modules in production systems and had no trouble
with either.   mxODBC is best if 
(a) you want to work a lot with dates and times,
(b) if you want your Windows and Unix code to have EXACTLY the same
database interface (you can build mxODBC for many database on Unix)
or (c) if it is a high-load application and you want to be sure of
using prepared statements.
