as op, i think i'm going to stick with the cast. but it's been an
interesting thread and i learned some useful things.

exactly. and i dislike typing

   "SELECT col FROM tab WHERE a=" . $a['blah'] . " AND ... "

or even

   "SELECT col FROM tab WHERE a={$a['blah']} AND ... "

when i could type 

   "SELECT col FROM tab WHERE a=$a->blah AND ... "

which is also easier to read.

i'm really lazy about typing.
