I don't know how much you have looked at sqlAlchemy, personally I mostly use the ORM side of it but it has a lower level interface that still makes use of its database independence, have a poke around http://www.sqlalchemy.org/docs/sqlexpression.html and see if its doing what you want there.

There are a lot of python lists out there, of the ones I watch the nzpug and the Melbourne pug are the two most active. There are up coming python conferences this year both in Australia and New Zealand so it feels like the community is starting to grow and become more interactive with each other.
