After having a look at SQLAlchemy, I have the impression that what I am
working on is just a tiny part of it, namely what is described here :

The goal of this lib is not ORM or anything, it merely tries to make it
possible to talk to the database with fine control over the sql, and in
a typesafe manner at that (something Python doesn't care about). It's
just "embedded SQL done in C++". If it makes decisions behing your back,
then it's missing its goal.

Later higher-level tools - among them ORMs - can be built upon it. That
is my initial goal in fact - build an ORM.
