Use psycopg2.  It's better maintained and has a better feature set at this 
point.  I would specifically recommend that you look at all the example 
programs that come with the software.  There's lots of stuff there that is 
easier to pick up that way than by reading the documentation, if it's even 
covered in the docs at all.

Unless D'Arcy suddenly appears with a new pygresql rev that blows everyone 
away I think this is a safe topic.  Not impossible but not too likely I 
think.
