"Compiled" EntityResult ; Switch SelectQuery processign to use EntityResult

                 Key: CAY-1136
             Project: Cayenne
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Cayenne Core Library
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Andrus Adamchik
            Assignee: Andrus Adamchik
             Fix For: 3.0

Related to the inheritance tasks (CAY-795)... We need a way to process all different forms
of DataRows that inheritance select queries require. Till now Cayenne worked with DataRows
that represented a single entity and used DbAttribute names as keys to the values. 

There were a few exceptions that were handled by "normalization" process during object creation.
I want this to exception to become a rule, and abstract normalization process via EntityResult,
"compiled" in the ClassDescriptor. So for the old style rows , normalization will be a noop
(encapsulated in an EntityResult), and for the rows using special column naming and extra
meta-columns (such as in case of horizontal inheritance), there will be a conversion process

Also the plan is to use EntityResult in SELECT ... clause column name generation, including
UNION queries under horizontal inheritance.

[Finally going forward (will not be done under this Jira, or maybe not even in 3.0), we may
migrate to array-based positional DataRows instead of a current Map-based. Per CAY-999 this
should provide huge memory savings, and preclude the need for "normalization".]
