apart from licensing, what do people think of tables that show one
"trait" e.g. a person's sex, birthdate , name ,address is a variation
of a trait row, and trait row's might be recursive ( e.g. names, ). Is
it going too far with the object side of a o-r mapping ? Would it impair
the performance a lot ? ( say 10,000 patients x 20 traits, 200,000 rows
; server holds onto a connection and makes a batch of 20 sql retrievals
per patient access request from one client).
