For completeness, I'll mention a shortcut-to-Cincinnati-
by-way-of-Rangoon possibility:  Tcl has a quite successful
(if ODBCishly slow) TclODBC <URL: http://wiki.tcl.tk/tclodbc >
package whose Linux manifestation is well-maintained, and
Tkinter *does* make all of Tcl accessible to Python programmers.
