elixir is a declarative layer over SQLAlchemy, which is a hi-level 
SQL/Python integration layer (and much more than an ORM). And it's in no 
way tied to SQLite (works as well with MySQL, Postgres and a couple 
other RDBMS).

There's a "low-level" DB-API compliant connector to SQLite. IIRC, it's 
even included in the stdlib now.
