Another OO DB wrapper fails the join test.
So I'm working on MKDoc
and of course it comes with it's own system for avoiding SQL, this one dubbed simply "lib::sql". Now, I'm no big fan of OO DB wrappers, but the rest of the MKDoc code is quite well conceived, I thought this might be worth its (large) weight in code.
Nope. It doesn't even handle a simple two-table join! It's based on the idea that every object will map to exactly one table and that every query will address only that table. Sigh.
