PyPI uses an ORM? As far as I know it is just running SQL via psycopg2.

Moving the current codebase wouldn't be possible given the direct usage of

My memory of the ORM used in PyPI is that it is relatively non-relational (I think it's based on Roundup's, which maybe supported non-relational backends?)
