[PD] pyext + pygresql vs sqlsingle

Dear list,

I need to insert around 5 sets of 40 values, per second from PD into a
postgresql database (both on the same machine). I can see two options -
pyext + pygresql or sqlsingle. 

>From a brief glance at both it looks like the Python route would be
better because sqlsingle introduces a lot of overhead  opening and
closing the connection, and vacuuming the db between writes. 

However, perhaps sqlsingle could handle the task on a modern machine
(Centrino 1.6GHz)? This would probably save me some time getting the
Python stuff working? Does anyone have any advice either way before I
start with this?
