Django for non web clients

I am writing an Python application which will expose REST API. It will be client agnostic. In future I will provide a Web client and a mobile client and may be a rich desktop client. These clients will connect to application using the REST api only.

Should I use Django for this? or is Django for Web based applications only as it is web framework. What advantage does Django brings in such a architecture.

Would it be much simpler if I use simple python with some python rest  web services framework on top of it instead of Django?

I am a big fan of Django but not sure if a Web framework such as django is good fit for REST Services based architecture. I not building a (monolithic) web application.
