Sorry, that's not true. We've designed the backend to support multiple
connectors and have it working with mxODBC and mxODBCConnect, but have not
yet added pymssql, adodbapi, and pyodbc. We've left open 'stubs' in the code
to add that functionality. As long as each of those returns an object that
provides DB API 2 compliant callables, it *should* work... (fingers

Of those connectors, we'll probably be working next on adding pymssql
support. Any contributions from you to add the adodbapi connector would also
be welcome, of course.
