attempting to create a sqlalchemy engine object will result in an exception:
File "/lib/python2.5/site-packages/SQLAlchemy-0.5.2-py2.5.egg/sqlalchemy/databases/mssql.py", line 1294, in create_connect_args
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'set_query_timeout'
According to the pymssql news page, the low level module in this major version release is not backwards compatible:
- BEWARE however, if you were using the lower level _mssql module, it changed in incompatible way. You will need to change your scripts, or continue to use pymssql 0.8.0. This is why major version number was incremented.
