Using something like ActiveRecord for Glorp would be like buying an airplane
just to taxi around the airport without ever lifting off the ground.

The big plus in Glorp that I'm seeing is that you can do more than
DirectMapping... you can describe tables on one side, model-objects on the
other, and then produce an almost arbitrary mapping between the two.

Sure, for simple stuff, one-class-is-one-table might make sense, but pay
attention to the other kinds of mapping styles.  Lots of power in there.  It's
how an ORM *should* be done.
