I have written up a set of guidelines for driver development based on
what I learned working on ruby-pg:


Whether we take one of the existing projects and improve upon it, or
start a complete rewrite, I hope these guidelines will be a useful

Note that the ruby-pg driver doesn't 100% adhere to those standards
(encoding is the primary problem, and that will be fixed).

I would appreciate comments by anyone (Greg Sabino Mullane: I included
you in the CC because I thought you may have some input). Even if the
python driver doesn't go in that direction, it will help me improve
