I'm all for an SQLAlchemy DA (does SQLAlchemy support anything other than  
PostgreSQL?) and this would help people move from Zope 2 to Zope 3 but it  
*cannot* replace the other DA's because of the imperfect nature of SQL and  
the even less perfect nature of RDBMs. :-/

Furthermore, there are many occasions where you want the kind of direct  
access to a relation you get with the existing DA's.
