I'm not aware of one, but I remember talking to someone at the
3rd Python workshop who was considering developing something. 
Unfortunately, I don't remember their name.

Yes, there is.  See http://www.python.org/ftp/python/contrib/Database/

We have a Python-based OODB that we developed here.  It has evolved 
(and continues to evolve) from a persistent-object system
(http://www.digicool.com/releases/bobo/Persistence.html) that was
releases as a part of our web-object publishing system, Bobo
(http://www.digicool.com/releases/bobo).  Let me know if you'd like to
find out more.
