You can still set up Informix and ODBC.  See the mxODBC docs for 
suggestions on doing this on a Unix machine.  I believe the Informix 
SDK may contain the ODBC drivers that you need to use.  (I used 
mxODBC when I was playing with Informix last year.)

Otherwise, there *is* an Informix module, currently maintained by 
Stephen Turner.  That might be your best bet.  
See the Vaults of Parnassus:

You may also consider posting on the DB-SIG mailinglist (see the 
Python website for info about the SIGs) when you run into 
database trouble.
