What's a database "adapter"? That's not at all clear to me as a lay
person. At a first guess, I'd have assumed it was something special in
some way, and looked for something simpler.

python-popy in unstable currently has:
  Description: Python module for PostgreSQL
which seems perfectly concise, useful and accurate to me...

> python-popy: module providing programmers a database adapter from python to PostgreSQL using the Python Database API Specification 2.0 (level 2 compliant)

All those other details are more appropriate for the extended description.
Which is where they are now.

What was the point again?
