Sounds like an ORM to me ;-)

Seriously, SQLAlchemy lets you do all of the things you're worried 
about, performance and flexibility wise, as well as map your sql onto 
objects (or not, if you don't actually want objects!) with ease...

Hmm, I guess what I'm actually saying is that ORM or not is one choice, 
either way, I'd *strongly* recommend using SQLAlchemy rather than trying 
to roll your own abstraction layer of any sort.
