BTW, the logging with the new id works.

However it also states
* Starting with Python 2.3, module authors can also use the object
types defined in the standard datetime module for date/time
processing. However, it should be noted that this does not
expose a C API like mxDateTime does which means that integration
with C based database modules is more difficult.
I brought this up as I noted that kinterbasdb is now supporting this and
it can also supports FixedPoint for numeric/decimal columns.
