what I remember of tomcat , web frameworks tend to 
pool database connection objects , and you can get a remote
proxy to a connection object through use of 
a Directory Service , like ldap; 
is there a way of setting the business of pycommon gmPG2
with an external acquired dbapi compliant connection, before using the
business objects ? (does the business objects depend on psycopg2 special
api ? I'm supposing psycopg2 doesn't allow for remote referenced connection
objects , or does it ?)
