Should execute() be allowed to execute multiple operations?


from dbi import *

conn = connect(database="test")
curs = conn.cursor()
                       INSERT INTO test_table VALUES (1, 'one');
                       INSERT INTO test_table VALUES(2, 'two');

If so, then given this execution should rowcount contain the value 2?

What if both a select statement and an insert/update statement exist in
a single call to execute?

Perhaps only the rows affected/returned by the last operation in a
given execute() should be given by rowcount?
