I think describing this as Ian saying the code in its current form "is a 
dead end" is to read rather more into the words than is actually there. 
I spoke to Ian, because he made the blog entry the same day as I was 
using SQLObject as an ORM exemplar in my "Using Databases in Python" 
tutorial, and I wanted a few words of reassurance.

You will find as SQLObject 2 appears that it's more of a refactoring 
than a complete revision. I suspect the maintenance of the code had 
become tedious because it had slowly morphed into a less-than-ideal form 
for its fully-developed functionality.
