Since it's not quite clear from your question: SQLAlchemy is a pretty
good package, but you need still need to know SQL to use it effectively
(if it's your case, please forget this remark).

From experience (with Delphi, VB and a couple related but less known
systems), directly tying widgets to database is a pretty brittle
architecture for anything else than Q&D Simple Stupid GUI/DB pipelines.
