Modifying the database schema (adding a new field) requires usually
changes in tons of SQL methods..updating your ORM schema definition
usually takes only one or a few lines of code.

Or why the hell do you want to write complicated SQL code (I
remember legacy code of a co-worker to tons of complex JOINs)
yourself while you could implement the same functionality in much
nicer way using Python?

If you ask me: writing SQL is for masochists.
