While dbsprockets is definitely an interesting project, formlib has been 
around for some years now, and the schema/widget system for quite a few 
years more. There's the argument of maturity. There's also that 
dbsprockets is mostly around SQLAlchemy, with "support for other ORMs in 
the future" (says the home page), and while having ORM support is nice, 
we got an object database too. :)
