    Python ODBC bridge

    I use lxml for the XML parsing and pyodbc as the ODBC library. We have a small team so I just keep it as simple as possible: 1. A cursor yields the XML documents from a SQL query as a stream 2. A generator function parses the XML document and yields the rows (you could parallelize this step) 3. Stream each of the resulting rows to a single CSV file 4. Scoop up the resulting CSV file into the target database (usually with the DB engine's loader; bulk insert isn't so fast over ODBC) It ends up being a straight forward, low-overhead approach.
