- A couple of knowledgable and/or experienced people should run the project.
(Do you really want 'sequences' in PEAR DB? Short answer: NO!)
- Those responsible for the library (the guys/women I just mentioned) must provide a guideline of what code should look like. I don't mean that in the sense of "Use tabs instead of spaces" or something like that. I mean it more like this: "If a function/method returns an object, it should always be of the same class.". Those guidelines force a programmer into thinking about what he's coding much better.
I understand what you mean though - there are more important standards that can be set than how the code should look
[b]So the method shouldn't be there. If an application needs something like 'fetchOne', let the application programmer put it in his/her own code.[B]
Oh and a small point about all of you here: you are typically NOT the 'awful coders' I'm talked about in my previous post. Reason: your being here shows that you are aware of the difficulties of programming, and of the eagerness to learn.
