Right, then what we definitely want is a smarter ResultSource object  
- one that produces the appropriate union select when ->from is  
called, and can redirect insert/update requests appropriately. the  
problem, as I say, is that currently the ResultSet passes the source  
straight through to storage whereas what we really need is to be  
passing the request to the source first so it can indirect through  
sources for tables A and B as appropriate.

Might be worth having a look at John's bytea-related branch and  
seeing how much trouble it'd be to do this - then it could be  
completely transparent to the class itself ...
