Pool based connections can be tricky as well:

   When a DA instance is accessed several times during the
   same request, it *MUST* use the same connection.

   Otherwise, you will get the same hazardous behaviour
   as with "_v_" variables being lost, just more often
   and more reliable...

I know that the "ZPsycopgDA" which comes with "psycopg 1.x" uses
"_v_" variables. I do not know whether that of "psycopg 2.x"
uses a connection pool and uses it in the correct way.

I only know that the correct connection pool use is tricky...
