I would rather have an elegant way to deal with relational databases by writing Python code *instead* of SQL, than yet another mechanism for embedding SQL in Python.
You're wanting to solve a slightly different problem than I was, but can you elaborate on this a bit? How do you currently interact with relational databases? Are you objecting to some ugliness of SQL itself, or do you want a more powerful abstraction?
To the extent that I have to work with awkward legacy database structures, I find that my strategy is usually this:
1) Write minimal SQL to get most of the data that I need up front.
2) Manipulate the data many ways in Python.
3) Write minimal SQL to put data back in the database.
