I'm using psycopg2 and works pretty well, it convers all types
automatically. For really simple apps if something I could consider
simple interfaces that avoids to write the sql word.

Now I'm integrating twisted web2 with Cheetah (credit to Paul for
pointing me at Cheetah) so I'm removing the too fragile nevow dependency
(and Cheetah seems much faster too, or perhaps it's web2 dunno). It's a
bit tricky to rewrite the code (i've to use explicit deferreds instead
of the implcit ones in nevow) but it seems worth it and performance will
be better anyway.

(and if web2 API changes that's ok of course, it still has no chance to
obsolete all forms and the html rendering, Cheetah is solid and fast and
with huge userbase unlike nevow)
