Lisp is just wonderful. :)

Actually, that link you did is exactly what the base of SQLAlchemy is
(and mostly what I use, I rarely use the ORM parts). That is the part
that is optimizes expressions specifically for the back-end. When you
create the database it returns a refinement of that database, anything
you create from it will be optimized specifically for that DB. it is
a lot more work, but it allows it to be the most efficient SQL library
for Python, and allows new SQL dialects to be added with no front-end
