I have used SQLObjects, and I liked it. However, the syntax was a
little weird. But it does make interfacing to the SQL (mySQL) easier
for the SQL non-expert. 

As for other object storages, I also use the Durus persistence package.
My software's whole configuration database is based on it. It makes a
great free-form data storage. My wrapper objects make it look like a
hierarchical file system, except that it stores Python objects.
