And what about classes that can be stored in various backends? For
example, in tiOPF the same class can be stored in CSV, Tab delimited,
XML or any SQL DB - all with a compiler define or parameter to the
application at runtime. Also, foreign keys and primary keys don't mean
anything to XML, CSV etc...
