Oh, it seems I was missing the point. Somehow I thought Handel uses
"just a few columns" of my tables. (Like some authentication modules,
who expect to have a column 'username' and 'password', but my User table
has a lot more fields.) So I thought it could use my existing models.

Ok, I got that point. But if it's only for internal usage - you're
right, it just doesn't matter (and my app should not care).

Thanks. Don't hurry.
