A hash of arrays would be more appropriate assuming you mean a typical RDBMS-ish system. There is no order to the rows in a table and you'd violate that by providing an array. Maybe if we had an array with no order then you could say that.

    And of course there's DB_File (and MLDBM) where you can tie a hash to a database (though not a RDBMS or SQL). How's that for abstraction?
