That's my impression, yes.

Yes, and no. On the database refactoring branch I put in something  
very basic - I think if we start to introduce a central point to  
gather the handling, and introduce them in specific cases like the one  
you want, we can gradually introduce it.

I'm a bit swamped up until ApacheCon next month, but I'm happy to help  
you get started here, and I'm sure others are interested. If you  
wanted to share some ideas for how it might work I'm sure we can get  
something happening.
