I am happy that you also included a non-dbapi (postgresql classic
interface ) along with the standard DBAPI module.

I would like to know if it has been tested with postgresql 8.3 and are
there any known bottlenecks while using this driver module on large
scale database opperations?
Is this actively maintained?
Perhaps this might be off topic but may I ask, how is pypgsql, 
Has any one used pgsql for any postgresql based software?
and between pygresql and pypgsql which one is more maintained?

the system I am developing is a mission critical financial application
and I must be pritty sure about any module I am using.

happy hacking.
