Subject Secondary indexes change everything?
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2010 13:44:07 GMT
It seems to me that secondary indexes (new in 0.7) change everything when it
comes to data modeling.

- OOP becomes obsolete
- primary indexes become obsolete if you ever want to do a range query
(which you probably will...), better to assign a random row id

Taken together, it's likely that very little will remain of your old
database schema...

Am I right?
