I don't want an API. I want layers of objects. At the bottom level I have
either storage objects or records in a table. At the higher layers I have
abstractions over those objects. Using objects I can build a 1-tier,
2-tier, 3-tier or n-tier system. I can have as many levels of business
rules and clients and servers as I need. I can also query objects and
build object schemas using standardized, multiply-implemented languages.
