You might be the perfect candidate to look at what Cincom folks are
doing with their Seaside + GLORP efforts for upcoming releases by
joining vw-dev mailing list if you aren't already on it; see
http://parcplace.net for details.

"We see the enthusiasm surrounding Seaside, and have gotten a lot of
questions about what we plan to do with the Cincom Smalltalk port of
Seaside. We plan to support Seaside, and that support will include a
relational persistence solution."

Michael, do you have any idea how usable GLORP's ActiveRecord might be
by now for simple use cases like Oleg's?
