I suspect a lot of databases are like this, and it depends on
implementation of the DA. As an example, the original ZMySQLDA (circa
1.1.3), using MySQLmodule-1.4, probably returned all column names as
table.column. Versions of ZMySQLDA that use MySQLdb (i.e. the patched
1.1.3, 1.2, and 2.0.x) use just the column name. adr.id and fac.id have
the same column name, of course. I'm a little surprised that some DAs
would return column names with periods in them, since this would require
using the special namespace object to get at them, i.e. _['adr.id'].

The WHERE and ORDER BY clauses can use table.column references without any
problem. The issue is the names of the columns returned by a SELECT.
