  You did not specify what platform you will be implementing this on.  I
think everyone assumes Windows.

A quick google search leads me to:
which mentions that IBM has done some recent work with an ADO.NET driver.

dotNET things can be conveniently run from IronPython.

The fepy project has several simple .NET based SQL modules which
more-or-less follow the db API 2.0 standard and are written in pure

There is also the adodbapi module which could be used as a Python code
example. It fully implements the API, but I have not yet gotten around to
forking a version which is specific to ADO.NET -- the existing code uses the
COM interface to ADO. Microsoft fixed the last bug in the IronPython COM
interface yesterday, which is what I have been waiting for before starting
on another update. Some collaboration might be possible...

I have had good success talking to an AS400 DB2 database using adodbapi.
