Perl/SQL database issues on O'Reilly's Perl.com:
"if you look at the code above, you will see two languages: Perl and SQL. This makes the code not that readable. Besides, SQL statements that are only slightly different may appear in several places, and this will make it more difficult to maintain. In addition, suppose you have an SQL expert who should optimize your SQL calls. How do you let him work on the SQL; should he look through your Perl code for it? And what if that guy is so ignorant that he doesn't even know Perl?
