I don't expect that it will hold a candle to SQLAlchemy
 No composite primary key support -
http://code.djangoproject.com/ticket/373 is the first thing that comes
to mind (and one of SQLAlchemy's killer features).
 I don't think it follows a data mapper pattern.
 I'm not sure how much reflection it can do.
 Also, it's 'part' of a larger project so manpower will be limited as
opposed to SQLAlchemy.

I believe there are projects that are trying to stitch in SQLAlchemy
into Django but I haven't really used the framework so I'm not sure.
