one general observation i have on this is that very tight tooling
integration between IDEs and data-access is a missing bit of the
jigsaw ATM. when i see developers grappling with data access issues,
they have to cut bits of SQL from logs and then paste into an IDE.

perhaps it might be possible to develop a monitor logging API which
would allow interested tools to observe the SQL as it is being

this would be an ideal complement to being able to jump from a data
access object to the mapped database tables etc within a debugger etc.
