> PgSQL is a package of two (2) modules that provide a Python DB-API 2.0
> compliant interface to PostgreSQL databases.  The first module, libpq,

> support for various PostgreSQL data types, such as INT8, NUMERIC, MONEY,
> BOOL, ARRAYS, etc.  This module is written in Python and works with
> PostgreSQL 6.5.2 or later and Python 1.5.2 or later.
