Hmm, how hard would it be to come up with some sort of Avalon component 
that wraps OJB's PersistenceManager?  Or would we not even have to use 
it as an Avalon component if we can just directly get a 
PersistenceManager instance?

I would wager that if we had easy access to the PersistenceManager (or 
other similar things) in Flow, that could easily cover 80% of the use
