Just because it's not in the current namespace doesn't mean it's not
an error. From PEP 249 (the db api v2) :

  ProgrammingError

            Exception raised for programming errors, e.g. table not
            found or already exists, syntax error in the SQL
            statement, wrong number of parameters specified, etc.  It
            must be a subclass of DatabaseError.
