Ah.  Then working with you would be a much more pleasant experience than
I've had with most development teams.  It's just amazing and dismaying how
few programmers have any interest in data design (and I'm not just talking
about knowing how to construct the occasional SQL query).

Independently of the OO versus the world debate-- I think one of XML's
important results is encouraging programmers toward such interest
(even if it's driven by the demotic incentive of lining their CVs).
