This is inaccurate.  adbapi can talk to PostgreSQL - or any database, for that matter - using any db-api compliant driver that you pass to it.

Nothing needs to be fixed.  Even the test cases already have a PsycopgConnector in them, so this won't even decrease test coverage on Debian.

More positively: we retroactively fixed it in the past, so you have nothing to worry about now :).
