Maybe you could change the license to GPL+"special
exception", where "special exception" is some statement,
that it is always allowed to use the psycopg API for
whatever software with whatever license.  I remember that
many code generators such as bison and snacc do allow that
the generated code can be used for everything, GPL or not.
