At the time I made it up, the name "orm" seemed like a great idea to
me. Partly due to incompetance: I was not familiar with the
abriviation "orm" for "Object Relational Mapper" ;-) I'm not sure if
renaming would make that much sense: it does cause some confusion and
maybe it's silly but on the other hand I get 30 hits or so per month
from people googling for "python orm" :-)
