I have create RealPyOdbc, that is a class made in pure python that
create a simple interface from python to odbc with the use of ctypes.
Of course, it work on every system where ctypes work (win, linux, mac).

It has no db-api 2.0 compatible (my free time is very low), but the work
for make it compatible is very low.

You can see it here:


In the future, when I'll finish it (make the db-api 2), I'll open a
sf.net project.

I hope it will help you.
