No, I want to be able to intelligently use pieces that

I know it can be done, which is why I was asking for

I'm fine with the work, but I believe there must be a
way to do it that doesn't require tons.  I could do it
from scratch using pg module, etc.. but figured there
must be something I could use already there

I don't want to use ZSQL methods, or I want to be able

to define them Dynamically.  I see this sight as a
product with componenets.  Why would I want to
maintain 20 ZSQL methods when I could merely pass a
couple of arguments such as DB name, which would be
instantiated by a manage_addProduct form.  I guess I
could just trick it and pass everything (the whole
select) into the one method as a var, but if I can do
that I should be able to do it directly.

As far as argument quoting, why would there be any?
I'm using a class member to take care of querying for
me, why would I be passing arguments to it?  Any
arguments would have been dynamically created based on
the class instantiation.  There are database hooks for
user administration, etc... all I was asking is for a
good example of how to do it...

I was trying to adhere to the principles used in
designing ZClasses, make it look simple...

tons of dtml and "external python methods" mixed in
with 15-20 ZSQL methods just didn't seem to be simple
when it could be made into a product...
