Great! That's sufficient. I wasn't aware concatenating statements works 
like that.

Guess you refer to (which I here reproduce for others who might wonder):

"The primary advantage of PQexecParams over PQexec is that parameter 
values can be separated from the command string, thus avoiding the need 
for tedious and error-prone quoting and escaping.

Unlike PQexec, PQexecParams allows at most one SQL command in the given 
string. (There can be semicolons in it, but not more than one nonempty 
command.) This is a limitation of the underlying protocol, but has some 
usefulness as an extra defense against SQL-injection attacks."


Btw: does Psycopg currently use PQprepare/PQexecPrepared ?

Thanks for your help,
