in reply to The crime under reusability

As allready mentioned this is not that unique in the corporate world. What do you think about fitting all data into one table, with columns field name and value, under the pursuit of simplicity of database access? That was the design of the main internal database in one of the polish biggest portals.

    The One Big Table design is hardly unique, but having a presumably reasonable database model and then ignoring its benifits (as the OP described) is something I've not heard of often.

    I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.
