Perrin, you don't take sides explicitly, but I will.

I don't like rows being mapped to objects, but that might just be my  
experience with it, which has always meant you suffer a performance  
hit, and then it is expected that you tell your model all about your  
relationships. Two things that don't have value in the way I program.
