Having just been through this, I believe that the easiest solution would
be to use ODBC. You can download a PostgreSQL ODBC driver from the
PostgresSQL ftp site, and then use either the ODBC module that ships
with the Win32 extensions to Python, or download the excellent mxODBC
and use it.

I have successfully been able to code with mxODBC/Tkinter and had the
code developed on my Linux box run pretty much immediately on a Win box.

Stand Fast,
