I got as far as checking its threadsafety - level 1 compliance
is a major lack to me. I also stick to using the DB API, so I can't
see any improvement in functionality to PoPy or Psycopg. If you only
want a thread level 1 compliant driver, is there any real advantage
over using PyGreSQL which is shipped as part of PostgreSQL?
These issues may be the reason there is a lack of commentary on pypgsql.
The other reason is that it must be a secret, as it still hasn't made
it onto the DB-SIG's modules list.
