Kirill Simonov and myself would like to introduce HTSQL, a novel
to relational database access which is neither an ORM nor raw SQL.
HTSQL is a URI-based high-level query language for relational databases.
It's implemented as a Python WSGI application. Currently it supports
PostgreSQL and SQLite (more databases & juicy features forthcoming).
At this point, HTSQL 2.0 may not be mature enough for production use; we
expect to fill in any remaining gaps in the coming months.
We're curious what you think. Join us in #htsql on freenode ,
to the mailing list  and please come to our PyCon 2011 talk .
Clark & Kirill
