SQL Relay might be useful for you: http://sqlrelay.sourceforge.net/

But it also relies on FreeTDS for access to MS SQL Server, so it might
not bring any advantage above the ordinary Sybase driver. It is another
server process to run...

For access on Windows, you might consider using ADO or the adodbapi
package as alternatives to the odbc module in win32all. The odbc
package is fairly old, and not complient with DB-API version 2 as far
as I understand.
