I honestly don't give a damn about rails. In fact, if anything, I'm 
trying to go against the rails-way by breaking out of the common 
ActiveRecord-esque interface (write, validate, save) by using a 
write-on-set which takes advantage of MongoDB.

I was more asking this question from a general programming perspective. 
Thanks for your reply though none-the-less.
