Actually, I think you'll have to go mxODBC/unixODBC on Unix. The
unixODBC driver manager ships with an ODBC driver for PostgreSQL.
Not sure about the iODBC manager. Of course, the mxODBC Zope DA
can work with both at the same time, if you need another driver
from iODBC.

If you need a commercial quality driver, OpenLink has one and
I think EasySoft offer one too.

BTW, we're working on a fix for the problem and release
mxODBC Zope DA 1.0.6 later today.
