I like what you did with prefetch.  If you want to get into more exotic 
queries where things don't map as well to individual CDBI objects, you 
may need some sort of new concept, like a class that represents a row in 
a report.  It could be similar to an on-the-fly CDBI class, with has_a 
relationships for the normal CDBI objects that are in the row.
