Well, it overlaps with PDO, including the version we're just now
testing (which has input functionality - though in PDO land its an
'EditableResultSet' and allows for editing of existing records).

But that's in testing, and isn't released yet :)

* shift into thinking-out-loud mode *
As a side question - PDO currently uses
results['foo'].value | results.fields['foo'].value
style syntax - we could (very) easily add
 - but _should_ we do it?  It would take the number of ways to
access  a column to 3, which seems somewhat redundant, but it
does save 4 characters per column access.  Of course, a column
name may be unusable for this access method without mangling -
I'm thinking of access and spaces within a column name.
* end off-topic brainstorming junk *

Take a look at PDO - you're welcome to join the project if this sort
of thing interests you.  If you don't like it, you can always just keep
working on your own.  No harm, no foul either way.
