No, python has database interfaces of it own. There is even a whole
database engine writen in python (with some C modules for speed), gadfly.

But python keeps each list configuration in a python marshal, which is one
of the many ways python has to freeze objects in memory to disk. If you
know some python you can use the 'withlist' script to play directly with
the fields of the list configuration. It's a good way to do complex
scripted alterations on lists.
