FWIW, SQLAlchemy is not an ORM, but an higher-level API for SQL 
integration. The ORM part is an optional feature built on top of this 
API. But I'm not sure SQLAlchemy supports SQL Server anyway !-)

AFAICT:

* there's an experimental MS SQL Server db-module:
http://www.object-craft.com.au/projects/mssql/

* the Win32 extensions offers support for ADO, but then it's not db-api 
compliant

* unless you use adodbapi, but I don't know if it's still supported 
(last release is 3+ years old):
http://adodbapi.sourceforge.net/
