There are at least two problems with ojbConcreteClass and queries that I 
know of, perhaps you could have a look at them while you're at it ?

* Queries seem to not respect inheritance hierarchies that use the 
multiple-joined-tables strategy (which requires that no extent-class is 
used, and ojbConcreteClass is useless in this scenario), see this thread:


* If you remember we had a discussion last month with Andrew Clute about 
the possibility to specify something like ojbConcreteClass on the other 
end of a reference/collection:


Also it would be nice to make the name of the concrete-class field 

I don't know how much additional work that would mean, though ;-)
