Ah, I'll try that.

Yes, that's just a bit awkward and you kind of loose sqlobject's abstraction.

I'll take a look. The problem is, we're currently on 0.7 and I wouldn't think adding something to this version is likely to run on svn HEAD, right? Maybe we could switch to HEAD. How stable is HEAD then?

Ah yes, I was actually aware of that. But unless I'm getting something wrong,using sqlbuilder.Delete results in the following statements:

conn = sqlobject.sqlhub.getConnection()
conn.query(conn.sqlrepr(Delete(Klass.sqlmeta.table, Klass.q.otherKlassID = 10)))

What I would like to do is pass an sresult directly:

sqlobject.Delete(Klass.selectBy(otherKlassID = 10))

or even

Klass.selectBy(otherKlassID = 10).destroy()

Or am I missing something?


PS: I'm really sorry about that large signature, but, unfortunately, changing it is beyond my reach. It's our proxy that adds it (same as it inhibits using a web mail client...).
