QSql vs DB-API?

I’ve recently begun trying to create GUIs for my Python applications with PyQt, and I can say I’m absolutely loving the toolkit, relatively easy to use and featureful. As I’m trying to create a GUI for some module I wrote that deals with databases (using MySQLdb), I also learnt that Qt has a series of classes for dealing with databases, mainly QSql.

My question, directed to whoever has experience with QSql and the Python DB-API, is: what are the advantages of one approach to the other? I’m leaning towards DB-API because like that I can create modules which work also in command line applications.
