There is already the "PyPy compatibility" wiki, where your input is welcome:

About the packages you mentioned: django and sqlite are known to work,
lxml does not work at the moment because it relies on too many unsupported C
and I managed to make pywin32 work correctly, but only with a patch that I
haven't yet submitted to the pywin32 developers.
