Of course - as long as there's a Python adapter for your DB.

Of course - as long as it's either a Python templating system or there's 
a Python binding for this system.

Uh ? Rails is a Ruby framework.

No, you don't. If you prefer to reinvent the wheel on each and any part 
of each an any web app you write, please feel free to do so.

Which "that" question ?-)

For question related to Django's ORM, the django group is indeed a 
better place (as usual: always use the most specific group / maling list 
/ whatever first). If you have questions (like the above) that are about 
Python itself, you're at the right place.
