Not really. You're tied in to Django's templating engine, ORM, etc. Also, 
Django is not true MVC, as in order to get the "cool" automagic admin section 
they embed view and controller logic in their models. Not for me thanks, I'm 
too much of a perfectionist and idealist.

Pylons is a much better option, as it is written to be the glue between 
various Python libraries, rather than a framework in and of itself. TurboGears 
2.0 is based on Pylons.
