Overview of competing Python modules?

Has anyone ever compiled an overview of competing Python modules?
Something like "there's the standard cvs module and the one from
pycvs.sourcefor ge.net but most people use cvs (or pycvs) because it's
<whatever>".

I'm particularly interested in competing modules for:

* CVS formatted files

* XML formatted files

* Database connectors to
MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase, MSSQL and ODBC
Thanks, Thorsten

How would anybody that?

For database modules look at:

Try the Python wiki: <http://www.python.org/moin/FrontPage>

Also, I've had fairly good results from typing the general topic and a
couple of competitors into a single google web or usenet search, e.g.

postgresql python psycopg pypgsql
