Database adapters

	I'm using Python for my database work, and need to be able to connect 
to various servers, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Firebird, and others. 
There are a number of adapters available for each of these, but I run 
into the same problem with all: I need to have that database server 
installed on the machine for which I need to build the adapter. Since 
my development work is done on a workstation and not a server, this 
causes a problem.

	How do I accomplish this? How can I build, say, psycopg so that I can 
connect from my dev machine to a server that's on another host 
somewhere on the internet?
