in thread Database abstraction including data types

I agree completely; "DB abstraction layer" is just a fancy term for that piece of centralized code that speaks SQL to the database and business objects to the rest. The original coughphpcough code has just the problem you mentioned: it needs to know which column is a boolean and treat that specially in quite a lot of places to account for MySQL vs. PostgeSQL differences, and I don't want to go there.
