Hm, I was thinking of doing a alpha1 release before we have a go at the
runtime.
But if you think we should change the runtime first, we can also do that.

I'd rather not do it. We have all the information for processing data in a
typesafe manner, so why do we want to have a class in the middle which
stores information as a Object with no type information at all ? But
perhaps I should make a suggestion of what solution is in my mind. But
before that, we should decide whether this should happen before an alpha1
release or after.

Yes, see above.

Ok, to be honest, the problem is it costs my time to migrate the templates
to the new generator. So I'd rather not migrate templates for DB2/AS400
(although its possible, just check the output against the old output),
because I do not think anybody will ever use it and it will just be a waste
of time (which I do not have plenty at the moment).
Ok, we can do HSQL, it is commonly used, but if somebody else uses any
other database we can provide docs on how to do it and see if somebody
screams. Besides, they can always use Torque 3.3
