Very interesting, I had a similar kind of problem (a network balancer 
that doesn't balance small tcp packages too well) and solved it by 
wrapping the TCP package in UDP. UDP was treated differently, although 
in overall switch and router manager it has a lower priority compared to 
other tcp packages, in normal usage it was faster.

Probably because UDP has less things to inspect and by this can be 
processed faster by all the network equipment in between, but to be 
honest it worked for me and the client wasn't interested in academic 
explanations and since this was a working solution I didn't investigated 
it any further.

Oh and a big thank you for PyGreSQL,! It has proven to be an extremely 
useful module for me (especially since I used to hop a lot between 
different unixes and Windows).
