Thanks for the pointers but I am after using it with Microsoft SQL Server not mysql which has native support in Django and python.

Oops, sorry, skimmed too fast.   Found this, but haven't tried/tested it:

If you'd like create a new feature request & we'll put it on the todo list & write up an article/tutorial. 

 

thx.
