Ouch. Shouldn't have sent this email before testing the newest versions.
Looks like PyPgSQL (which I meant, not PyGreSQL) is now pretty much on par 
with PyGreSQL speedwise. What's more: without me noticing, it now supports 
fully notify/listen without need for extra libraries.

Using it installs cleanly on all systems I just tried (including 
Mandrake, which always was difficult for PsycoPg), and they provide a 
"setup.exe" binary for the compiler-deprived Windows users among us.

Same as PyGreSQL, it comes in a libpq and a DB-API version in the same 
package, though the libpq version is un-pythonish and ugly compared to

I haven't found any references regarding the status on Macs.

Karsten seems to favour PyPgSQL.

We have to come to a conclusion quick, since I am itching to continue my 
database work and I don want to rewrite all adapter specific sections yet 
another time.
