Probably stretching my memory a bit too much for specific examples.  
ISTR there being worse things, but even looking at the  
DefaultBuildController there are a few ugly things.

In particular, storing build results, then having to get them back  
because they are going to be used again.

I think the transactions aren't long enough. It's possible to do  
things like:

throw an exception
didn't get to save something else, so something is in a 'partial' state.

This is a continuum design issue, and if it were fixed the store  
would be simpler because you wouldn't need to be constantly updating/ 
storing/getting objects if they are still in the same open  
transaction that will either be committed or rolled back when it is  

But bear in mind this is more my general impression than careful  
analysis :)

It was definitely the build results, the build number and the build  
state that I felt wasn't managed carefully enough.
