PyGreSQL is the only one from the 3 Postgres Python interfaces available
that I could build on Windows. The other two were too unixoid. And it's also
the original, which is included in the Postgres distribution. The PyGreSQL
web site at is currently only showing the default Apache docs. I
hope they will be back soon.

In the meantime you can still use the Windows version from my homepage (it's
a superset of the source distribution with a few patches from my part).
