We were reluctant to use mission-critical code which lacked even a vague
attempt at unit tests (or any other type of tests). When we looked two
years ago, pyPgSQL was the only Python-PG module with ANY tests at all.
That was teh unscientific basis on which we chose it - and the fact that
GNUmed had, at that stage, been using pyPgSQL for several years...
