Check out the Brainwave platform, which uses a new "neural" database model.
 It allows you to create databases to store any kind of Python object as a
"neuron" and allows objects to be connected via link to create complex
structures that don't require conventional tables and columns.
It is a development platform that has a bundled webserver based on CherryPy,
with a built-in application generator and deployer.
