I'm fairly new to Python so please pardon any dumbness on my part.

I plan to write an app in Python that will run on Linux and  would need
to connect to Oracle and MySQL. I could use MySQLdb for MySQL and
cx_oracle for Oracle, but 2 different APIs in the same app is kind of

So I have unixODBC that gives me ODBC on Linux. The best ODBC access
for Python I know is mxODBC. But that is not free for commercial use.
Could someone tell me if there are other choices I have?
