They are both object-relational mappers, several of which exist for
Python. I hadn't looked at the Twisted ORM before, but it's no more
similar to SQLObject than the other ORMs -- they all do similar things
so of course they all look somewhat similar. I think SQLObject is
considerably more sophisticated and more convenient than Twisted's
SQLObject also creates objects that persist with less effort -- you
don't add them to a store, or fetch them from a store, or explicitly
save them back to the store. The store is the object. This is
different from many of the other ORMs for Python.
