Oleg and everyone else...

I'm not accusing anyone of anything.  :)

I totally appreciate all the hard work you've done.

The documentation below is just a link I provided.  I am not the author, nor am I maintainer of the documentation.  So I can't correct it.

Thank you for the explanation!

  The accusation "SqlObject does not catch and re-throw the exceptions of
the underlying DB-API module." is simply not true. It was changed long ago.

  SQLObject catches MySQdb.IntegrityError and rethrows it as
dberrors.IntegrityError in mysqconnection.py. If it is not enough - please
elaborate. If it's enough - please delete or update the first accusation on
that page.

PS. Please also update the second accusation. It is true that SQLObject
somewhat messes a few different namespaces but it has mechanisms to help
the user in this area. First, for most attributes you cannot create
a column if there is an attribute or function with the same name:

class Test(SQLObject):
  expire = StringCol()


Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "./test1.py", line 14, in <module>
   class Test(SQLObject):
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/SQLObject-0.10.2-py2.5.egg/sqlobject/declarative.py",
line 92, in __new__
   cls.__classinit__(cls, new_attrs)
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/SQLObject-0.10.2-py2.5.egg/sqlobject/main.py",
line 784, in __classinit__
 File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/SQLObject-0.10.2-py2.5.egg/sqlobject/main.py",
line 334, in addColumn
   % (soClass.__module__, soClass.__name__, name, name))
AssertionError: The class __main__.Test already has a variable or method
'expire', you cannot add the column 'expire'

  'dirty' seems to be a rare exception - it is set long after the name
clash check. I will add the issue to my TODO.

  Second, SQLObject allows to have two different names for a column
- python name and database name:

class Test(SQLObject):
  _expire = StringCol(dbName="expire")


 1/QueryR  :  CREATE TABLE test (
   expire TEXT

          Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
