It may be the case that someone has written a generic model for Python data
structures, but I'm not aware of it. It may be the case that some of the
scientific or data processing frameworks include Qt models that could be used
as a starting point for the data sets that you have.

Can you say anything about the structure of the data sets, or are you looking
for a generic model? Looking at the dal.py code, isn't it mostly used for
accessing SQL databases?
