! Name truncation warning
- ON UPDATE clause in generated schema
Would be nice to be able to specify this similar to on_delete.
- load_value() that returns object by value, similar to query_value()
That would be both the database class function as well as the query
result iterator function. The latter would be especially useful with
Somewhat related: it could be that for views it is better not to
dynamically allocate the instance when we do something like i->count.
- Mass UPDATE
This could be very useful in data migration code. In fact, need to
add an example in the manual when this is supported.
! Diagnose lack of default ctor if object used in relationship
Got two questions on the mailing list about that in one week. Maybe
always diagnose lack of public ctor? Maybe with a warning if no
relationship? The no_ctor pragma like no_id?
? Duplicate columns
It can sometimes be useful to map multiple data members to the same
column. For example, to map a shared_ptr to another object via id.
Or to update object id.
To implement this, we will have to be able to ignore duplicates in
the INSERT statement and in generated schema. So there will have to
be quite a bit of work throughout (bind, init, column counts, etc).
Also not clear if it is a good idea to always ignore duplicates
(could actually be a mistake) or only if the column name is
specified explicitly (still can be a mistake). Or mark it as a
duplicate with a special pragma.
Is this a special case of something like "expression columns"? It
seems the only place where such a duplicate column will actually
be mentioned is the SELECT statement.
