Re: The future of Dynamic Columns


I'm going to respond to your previous two emails with a generality:

It is sometimes better to optimize the software development process than the
software's data processing.

If this were not true, I would not be using this ORM at all and nobody
should. But the converse is also clear: sometimes the layers of indirection
and abstraction that make the life of an application developer more
comfortable and productive are not appropriate for the reasons you
mentioned, among others. Knowing which of the many tools to choose is part
of being a carpenter.
