Does it have to by in Python?  I host this project, written in C++:
http://honeypot.net/project/xbasetopg .  If that's too complicated, I've
written a replacement in straight C but I haven't published it yet.

I use these programs to sync our legacy FoxPro database to our new
PostgreSQL servers on an hourly basis.  Syncing 4GB of data tables about 10
minutes.
