You should *NOT* do this because you move outside of Zope's
Fetch the connection from the DA. It looks somehow like:
db = DA() # low level connection object
db._register() # register with Zope's transaction system
conn = db.db # this is the "psycopg" connection
Pass the "conn" into your code.

Cancel the login dialog and you will get the error message :-)

PythonScripts are a restricted environment where "import" is
restricted as well as access to attributes.
