interface, closer to a wrapper of libpq (but with lots of helper
functions to make it natural to use in python), and is
PyGreSQL's DBAPI-2.0-compliant interface, which is compatible with other
interfaces in python (so you could swap out another DB for PostgreSQL
without code changes, ideally)., in compliance with the DBAPI-2.0 spec, does things like match
data types up by using the system catalogs (so you don't have to convert
from text) and has even more features to make it even more natural to
use with python. However, with each version change, needs to be
updated to match the current version of the postgres catalogs, which is
the problem the poster ran into. I think it's supposed to be similar to
JDBC in some respects.

I usually use, so I might have some details wrong about
