How to choose between ORMs?

    SQLalchemy and Storm are a few of the popular ORMs out there.

    Personally I have been using web2py's DAL.

    Other than form generator availability, 'print as raw SQL', multiple
    primary keys, widgets*, `check` conditions and compatibility with
    OracleDB, Postgres, SQLite and some of the NoSQL systems; what else
    should I be looking for?

    Thanks for all suggestions,

    Alec Taylor

    *not sure if widgets should be a requirement; by widgets I mean
    annotation of db schema to specify which widget to use with the form
    generator

    PS: Will likely use this ORM with: Flask, Bottle or Twisted Matrix

    Depending on what you're doing, schema discovery (aka introspection,
    reflection, etc) may or may not be important to you.

    And it should come with a nice shrubbery.
