The big, big problem with any kind of TTW development is that it usually
breaks down badly when you move your code to a production server and then
need to continue development in a separate environment. Code and
configuration stored in a database is difficult to deploy and merge when the
same database holds live data and content. The same problem exists where
more than one developer needs to collaborate. Without source files and
source control, it's impossible to give each developer their own sandbox.
