As you might see I've asked about licensing in my first post.
So far code is at google site and I've chosen GPL 2.0 licensing for it.
There still are old licence headers in files itself.
I have no much experience with this, so thats why I asked about.
Psycopg is GPL, DCOracle2 is ZPL. ZPL seems to be less restrictive.
Am I right?

Yup, it is simple, and because of this I was able to implement this
very quickly. It is also stable. I've used psycopg a lot, so that's
why I've chosen this. I was not looking at other implementations
so far. But any suggestions, what might be better, are welcome (also
because of licensing). Anybody who wants to contribute is welcome too,
of course.
