Both the outreach, and the topic are a good idea.
Is this topic an add-on for that meeting...

I've recently started using SQLAlchemy on a new project, after using  
SQLObject a few months ago for a different project, both wrapping MySQL.
They both have strengths. Would be useful to have a comparison of  
them both.
My quick take is that SQLObject is easier for object relational  
mapping, and exposes fewer moving parts.
SLQALchemy took a little bit longer to get started, but has more  
power in the long run. (Yeah, you can get your hands on those moving  
No flames please.
I'd like to focus on one or the other, but I'm done trying out SA   
yet. Jury's still out.
I'd be interested to see others' thoughts who have tried both.
