I've been poking around the world of object-relational
mappers and it inspired me to coin a corellary to the
the famous quote on regular expressions:

"You have objects and a database: that's 2 problems.
So: get an object-relational mapper:
now you have 2**3 problems."

That is to say I feel that they all make me learn
so much about the internals and features of the
O-R mapper itself that I would be better off rolling
my own queries on an as-needed basis without
wasting so many brain cells.
