I don't understand the anti-loader thing. it saves me a lot of initial
typing.... it's kind of nice. but i totally agree on the whole  dump load
once and then mantain manually. A huge help when moving apps to DBIC.  the
auto loading of meta data into RDBO is what i really liked, column types,
length constraints, etc.
