Might I suggest sticking to 2.6 for now?

The 2.x series is what is now going around as 'stable' in the Python world.
Almost all third-party modules are written for 2.x (typically 2.3 or 2.4 and
higher). 3.0 is very new and the documentation and modules are not just up
to the standard of the 2.x series.

Using 3.0 right now will get you little added benefit at this point in time.

Also, chalk up my preference for SQLAlchemy.
