That new example does look a lot better!

TBH, your first example set alarms off in my head ;)

I think this looks very useful for rapid prototyping, but it also 
allows you to work in a bad way .... and unfortunately this way of 
doing it is so much closer to the way you'd do it in 'other 
environments' it will be attractive to newcomers, which is both good 
and bad ;)

On a personal note, it is unfortunate because I think your new 
techniques will be more attractive to my Client! Even though it may not 
be the best way to work, they will find it easier to understand, being 
closer to what they used to do. So even though I might prefer O-R 
Mapping, I don't think they will.

Anyway, please do not take this as criticism!

regards Jeremy
