in thread A question of style: Composite keys to multiple values
Yep. I like the idea. It "seems" heavyhanded at first blush. But the benefit on the aesthetics of the client side code would be marked.
I expect it won't grow past an absolute outer bound of a few hundred k pairsets. By then the thing to do would be to migrate all of it into stored procs (along with a couple levels farther out so it's all internal to the database.)
But I'll burn that bridge when I get to it.
