WRT #1, I'm afraid I'm on the critical path to getting Evan's patch into
Python, and I haven't been able to make enough spare time for it (it's a
non-trivial reviewing task). I still hope it can get into Python 2.5,
WRT #2, sorry, I'm not even sure what it means ;-) You mean you passed a
value smaller than 7 as DB()'s ``pool_size`` argument?
