SQLObject 0.7b1 is out. The code is in good shape, I believe, but the packaging and some of the documentation may not be.

"StringCol has char_binary attribute, for explicit case handling in MySQL."
Shouldn't be "charBinary", or maybe just binary=True|False. I personally prefer underscores to seperate in multi-word var names (and methods) but SQLOBject has a tradition of mixedCase.
