    22 PoPy is another python module connecting python and PostgreSQL.  It
    23 has been written with emphasis on complying with the Database API
    24 specification of python's Database Special Interest Group, without
    25 sacrificing speed of execution.  In particular, it complies with the DB
    26 API version 2.0, with thread safety level 2.  PoPy has support for
    27 large objects (BLOBs), arrays, and date objects.  It also permits both
    28 external and internal database procedure calls.  [ed comment:  what does
    29 this mean?]  As a convenience to programmers, it automatically performs
    30 conversions between python and PostgreSQL types, and signals dynamic
    31 problems using fine-grained exceptions.

    33 Moreover, PoPy's sister product, ZPoPyDA offered the first really usable
    34 database adapter connecting the Zope system and PostgreSQL.
