If you could abstract a generic API for persistence, you could
make the persistence mechanism pluggable. Big "if" here...

Something else, related to Criteria: it is well known that the
design of this class is really lacking, and makes it very
difficult to compose complex criteria. Criterion was a good
step forward, but this is definitely an area of Torque that
could use some redesigning.
