Mapping rows to objects in a "recordset" approach is usually considered
the more lightweight option.  The other option is to have a layer of
objects that totally hide the existence of a database, and may map
individual objects to multiple database rows and tables.  Class::DBI
sort of straddles the fence but is closer to a recordset approach.
