Perhaps, However not being familiar with the qmarks paramstyle, I
noticed this bit but most likely skimmed over it because I didn't make
the connection.. Learn something new every day..
Is the qmarks paramstyle a required part of the DB API 2.0 spec?

or at least distinguish. I assumed that the howto was using proper DB
API syntax, and that pyPgSQL is not 100% compliant, but it would be nice
to see the line drawn. I don't know that I've worked with a fully DB
API compliant driver at this point ;p
Thanks for the clarification...
