You want to recreate all of the machinery of ZSQL methods yourself?
Well, actually it can be done if your database supports some
reasonable API, like the python DB-SIG DB-API 2.0.

But you are creating a fair amount of work for yourself.
Just use a ZSQL method and be happy.  (It will probably
make your site more secure if you use ZSQL, as well, as
you will not have to worry as much about argument quoting).
