Excellent! Anand.

Evidently the "web" part of web.py makes people underestimate the
power and compactness of web.py

A simple scan through the web.db module [1] would have given all the
information  about

- abstraction -- Tables are objects, column data is accessible via dot
operator. So, a very nice abstraction.
- supports all the databases he wanted  [mysql, pg, sqlite, oracle,
firebird AND mssql]

The syntax is definitely more pythonic and self-explanatory than  edendb.

And unlike edendb [from what i can i tell from the one blog post],
web.py is used in production by scores of sites.
