A long time ago Stefan Richter has written something similar for Zope 2 (can't remember the name)

Why do you think it would be necessary or helpful to define a SQL dialect (which is designed for a relational data model and not for an object-oriented model)? The usecases for SQL are different from the usecases when you deal with the ZODB. I doubt that are benefits for real-world apps for such an approach.
