I've finally jumped the gun and got an initial release of SpiffyDb
ready. Here's an excerpt from my blog.
"I’ve just released SpiffyDb for the Zend Framework. SpiffyDb extends
the basic functionality of Zend_Db_Table and Zend_Db_Table_Select and
includes a Model/Mapper as shown in the Zend Framework Quick Start.
These new classes include a hoist of new features and automate much of
the model/mapper functionality that is common to them."
