Subject Re: gauging sandbox interest - openmodels

Hi Matt,
I like the idea; however, it might make more sense to simply have domain
objects (and in the case of dbutils perhaps a small derby database) in each
project as necessary. This can be used to both improve the unit tests and
provide working examples of the code.
