Python database 'frontends', what's available?

I'm desperately trying to move a Microsoft Access database application
(a simple accounts system I wrote myself) to Linux. Python is one of
my preferred programming laguages so I wonder if there are any good
Python 'frameworks' for writing database applications, in particular I
need good reporting and forms writing facilities. The basic database
and logic/arithmetic seem fairly simple to me.

You might take a look at Dabo. It's made for databases and is pretty
cool.

http://dabodev.com/

Not sure what else is out there.

You might look at web frameworks like django or turbo gears. The
tutorials for django jump right into database access, and the default
administrative stuff is robust and pretty simple.

Dabo looks very interesting, thank you!
