Okay, I think I now get this. And yes, in an ideal world, no templating (DTML, 
ZPT or otherwise) should be necesary.

This could be a "new way" for Zope (both 2 and 3) to tackle ZSQL and wouldn't 
interfere with ZSQL Methods in terms of backwards compatability.

It would also let us develop new database driver integration without having to 
worry about backwards compatability breakage with DA's. Hopefullly DA's and ZSQL 
methods would then gracefulyl slide into retirement...

Sound like a plan?

If so, then how about "SQL Templates" as a name for the thing you write SQL in, 
and "SQL Drivers" for the things that provide connectivity to a database?
