Interesting.  This is from their FAQ:

"""Internally, GNUe n-tier is object based. The objects contain data and 
business rules with data stored in an SQL database. The business objects 
are accessed using CORBA and we use Python-orbit for binding Python to our 
current ORB ORBit."""

So, perhaps it needs updating.  :)
