This is generally right, unless you use .execute(statement, (paras,)) on
the DA like you can with the mxODBC Zope DA. Although admittely this is
currently only available for ExternalMethods. Adding supporting for
.execute() in a DA is not hard. However, this should only be used
occasionally if it is important to generate your SQL and using something
like SQLalchemy isn't appropriate.

I don't think they are a bad idea in fact I find them very helpful but
they could be updated to use prepared statements with bound parameters
which require the driver to quote parameters. I've started work on a
simpleSQLTemplate which uses string.Template to support $placeholders
"SELECT id FROM table WHERE id = $value"
"SELECT id FROM table WHERE id = ?", (value,) # generate the SQL using the
appropriate paramstyle for the underlying DB driver.
