  • What I really want an ORM for is to take care of the mind-numbing SQL. The stuff you write repeatedly to "get a row with this primary key so I can look at those four columns". That's going to be 80% of your SQL coding in a moderate-sized app.

    But I agree with you... the other 20% can be split into "stuff that can be represented with convoluted Perl" vs "stuff that is better represented as real SQL". The line between those will vary from app to app, but the important thing is that that last category be relatively integrated with the ORM, so you don't go entirely into a different mode.
