If you want a PHP website to be able to access it as well as a python
web or desktop application, you might try something like XML-RPC.
Some python examples:
That last example uses the python-based Quixote web framework.
An alternative to XML-RPC is REST:

Usually the validation is separate from the database. For example, how
would you specify that a field contains an email address or a phone number.
To make a quick web front-end to a database without any programming you
can use the PHP-based dadabik: http://www.dadabik.org/
But in python, see formencode & SQLobject:
