Yes, somewhere down the line you will want
to get a report of all the customers in Ohio,
ordered by county and zip code, who have a
"rabbit cage" project -- and if you just pickle
everything you will end up traversing the entire
database, possibly multiple times
to find it.  A little old fashioned
database design up front can save you a lot of pain.
