I haven't tried it under Windows and I haven't had any feedback either
way from Windows users. 

For now, ocpgdb has no Python 3 support (I don't foresee any real
problems, however).

It was a while ago now and I can't remember the specific details - it was
more a general feeling that the existing offerings were going about it
the wrong way (with respect to parameter passing and escaping). I suspect
this was a historical artifact (presumably libpq didn't provide escaping
facilities or parameterised queries when the adapters were written).

Essentially, I just wanted a pyPgSQL with a more modern implementation.
Psycopg was (is?) also using Protocol 2. I felt that the way forward was
to switch to the Protocol 3 API features, in particular, parameterised
queries, and none of the existing Python adapters had done that (I got
the impression while writing my module that nobody was exercising the
new features).
