Its the right answer for a program that needs to be used with many 
different RDBMSes, especially if you use its metadata access procedures.

Use unixODBC. Its a wrapper that lets Windows ODBC drivers be run on UNIX/
Linux and there's a Python module that provides an interface to unixODBC 
and a Data Manager utility that configures ODBC data sources. The 
documentation for the module is poor but the module and utility both work 
well once you've figured out how to use them.
