Webware's MiddleKit?

MK enables you to access an RDB in an OO manner. MK is usable standalone.

Example (sketchy and incomplete):

customers = Customer.fetchAll()
for customer in customers:
   print cutomer.address().city()
   print customer.address.country()



P.S.: You can find MiddleKit here: webware.sourceforge.net
