How hard can automatic save be?
But how would immutable DAOs work? There was a thread, I think on scala-user, a 
long time ago discussing it, that pretty much concluded it would be very 
problematic. David weighed in and said after a long time he concluded that 
databases represent state.

Right, no one likes mutable anything :-)

I kinda wondered why you haven't pushed forward any more with the  
current record implementation... can one assume that is why - because  
it didn't feel right?

Some of this stuff is going to be fundamental to how we move forward -  
id love to perhaps discuss something that would be better than what we  
have already. Even if its just pie in the sky talk...

Cheers, Tim
