I have been having all sorts of trouble upgrading from ZODBCDA to ZmxODBC.
The ZODBCDA users RDB.DatabaseResults and ZmxODBC (modified from ZOracleDA)
uses Results.Results. These two classes seem to do exactly the same purpose
and so I suppose one shouldn't exist. The important point is that handle
NULL values very differently. Results let them pass through as None values
whereas DatabaseResults change them to the special value MissingValue.
MissingValue is nice becuase its string representation is an empty string
which is nice on html forms etc. Why doesn't Results do this too? What is
the official word on what a DA should be returning for NULLs?
