I'll be leading a BoF (Birds-of-a-Feather) session at next week's Python
Conference, tentatively titled "Object-Oriented Databases for Python"
(pending negotiation with Fred Drake, the BoFmeister).  Here's the
abstract/blurb for the session:

  Persistent data storage is a common requirement, and in a strongly
  object-oriented language like Python, object-oriented databases make a
  lot of sense.  To date, though, there is only one well-known and
  widely-used OO database in the Python world, specifically ZODB.
  The purpose of this BOF will be to discuss how people are using
  OO databases in their Python applications, to learn what's out there
  apart from ZODB, and to explore how the new features of Python 2.2
  will affect future OO database implementations in Python.

The session is scheduled for Tuesday (Feb 5) at lunchtime, carefully
chosen to *not* conflict with Jim Fulton's ZODB-related BoFs.

All are welcome.
