Peter, 

Thanks for much for your reply. I hope you will
consider changing this. 

I am author of free, open-source O-R mapping system,
osage at sourceforge.net.  Lutris's DODS is similar
system.  Biggest difference between these systems is
that, with DODS, most sql is statically generated and
compiled in data classes.  With osage, the sql is
generated at runtime.

Since osage generates all the Sql at runtime,  to deal
with the above, the software would need to be
concerned about what side of the expression was being
generated.

Regards, george
