... but so, swapping in a magic postgres driver file would have resolved the whole ass-ache. c'est la guerre. that's why, in a nutshell.

... Which I am not sure how that mathematically works out and I'm sure I'll find out when it ceases to do so. Nevertheless. I want to exhume a super-old project that is frankenstiened together with indexhibit, and as such brings along its RDBMS myopia... I don't like MySQL, so having to spin up an instance will infuriate me and cause a bunch of memory problems (in that order) so I was hoping for an easy way out -- I have been doing python for 3 years now so I am way to jaded to hack up the PHP in the ancient app (I did 6 years of PHP so I earned my resentment)...

But yes: in my efforts to win the hearts and minds of putative clients and employers, I had to cram a bunch of demos onto the same server instance that I have my portfolio and personal projects. The demos are mostly image-processing stuff in python... so not what the kids would call "web scale" w/r/t even modest scaling. python and color math are a workable recipe in desktop and academic-y single-user apps -- but so after some frantic optimization (which hopefully didn't coincide with HTTP requests from any fat cats) it runs OK but memory usage is now reportedly at 150%.

I was hoping someone would be like "yeah here's a link to the postgres adapter" but unfortunately your logic is sound; the fact that most programmers love saying things like "I wrote a database abstraction layer" to non-programmers, like when they're asked what they worked on last week, because it sounds cool.
