Have I ever told you how much I *hate* using @Transient to describe  
@NotPersistent? Transient is a serialization concept and I have no  
trouble with a field that is both transient and persistent. That is,  
not serialized but stored in the database. So calling something  
@Transient is a big ugly blotch. Because if it's really transient,  
you should mark it in the class as transient.
