Ok, I can see that...
I'd like to stick to mxDateTime, though, because I'd like orm to
remain compatible to Python 2.2. The reason behind this is Zope: Zope
2.6 still uses 2.1 and it's only in the upcoming 2.7 release that
they'll support Python 2.2.
We should consider the issue again when the other database drivers
start switching away from mxDateTime.
If you'd like the Firebird adapter to use the internal type from
Python 2.3 you can define a type/column pair in
adapters.firebird.columns, but please put it in an if clause, so that
it doesn't get defined for Python 2.2 users.
What do you think?
