But in the meantime I need to be able to look at my code and see whatís going on without having to stop and think hard for a third of a second at every other method, or Iíll never get anything done.
It sounds like your code is too DWIS instead of DWIM. Your top-level code should just be do_this, do_that which no hint of what model is doing what for you.

    In theory, that would be enough. In practice someone has to write that do_this, do_that toplevel code as well. :-) (That is exactly what I’m doing, FWIW. If I had the choice of PostgreSQL, I’d in fact be writing stored procedures.)
