-The documentation is separated into three sections: :ref:`orm_toplevel`, :ref:`core_toplevel`, and :ref:`dialect_toplevel`.
-SQL Expression language. The SQL Expression Language is a toolkit all its own, independent of the ORM package, which can be used to construct manipulable SQL
-SQLAlchemy builds using the standard `Python Distutils <http://docs.python.org/distutils/>`_ approach.
-`pip <http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pip/>`_. Assuming it's installed, just run this from the command-line:
+ Python install using the services provided via `Python Distutils <http://docs.python.org/distutils/>`_,
-SQLAlchemy includes C extensions which provide an extra speed boost for dealing with result sets. These extensions build automatically when the build or install commands of setup.py are invoked. If the C extensions cannot be built, the setup process will output a warning message.
-To disable building the C extensions, pass the flag ``--with-no-cextensions`` to the ``setup.py`` script.
-SQLAlchemy ships as Python 2 code. For Python 3 usage, the ``setup.py`` script will invoke the Python ``2to3`` tool on the build, plugging in an extra "preprocessor" as well. Using the Python 3 interpreter with ``setup.py`` or a Python 3 version of easy_install or pip is all that's needed.
-SQLAlchemy is designed to operate with a `DB-API <http://www.python.org/doc/peps/pep-0249/>`_ implementation built for a particular database, and includes support for the most popular databases. The current list is at :ref:`supported_dbapis`.
-This documentation covers SQLAlchemy version 0.7. If you're working on a system that already has SQLAlchemy installed, check the version from your Python prompt like this:
-Notes on what's changed from 0.6 to 0.7 is available on the SQLAlchemy wiki at `07Migration <http://www.sqlalchemy.org/trac/wiki/07Migration>`_.
