I don't know of a wrapper thats available but given that there 
is a C API to BDE it wouldn't be too hard to create a python 
wrapper - pyBDE maybe? :-)

OTOH Borland seem to be cooling in their love of BDE with the 
new database access in Kylix/Delphi 6 and the other new tools.

ODBC should be available anywhere BDE is and although not 
quite as functional its more universal. And Python has 
bindings to ODBC...
