Anyone know why the name PDO was chosen for what is really just a SQL 
abstraction layer?  I actually implemented something a while back that I 
called PDO, which provided a means to do get/set/save/delete etc. operations, 
on data objects, but the persistent implementation was hidden from the 
application programmer, similar to JDO.

  It seems like PDO is a misnomer, and there is a need for a real PDO
