SQLObject and SQLAlchemy have different purposes IMHO : the first one is
meant as a way to easily persist objects in a SQL DBMS, while the second
is primarily a (mostly successful) attempt to provide a higher-level,
pythonic interface to SQL DBMS - the ORM features of SQLAlchemy being
mostly built on top of the SQL/Python integration layer.
