I wish there was.  For ZPyGreSQL, I would really like to see:

        1) Thread-safe operation.  I.e., if desired, one database
           connection per thread.  Or better yet a pool of connections,
           allowing m threads, but n (n<m) concurrent PostgreSQL queries.

        2) A bit of introspection, i.e. showing the tables and columns.
           We're getting people who simply can't handle a command line,
           so they can't really run psql in a separate terminal window.
           Gadfly DA does this.

Any hints/takers.  I've looked over ZPyGreSQL pretty carefully -- it isn't
all that big.

Interesting.  Gotta look into this.
