just FYI i fixed some bugs with DBize (the database-ify your object
mixin). it should work fine now.

also i discovered that ONI (object network interface, akin to DRb) looks
to be a bit limited b/c the YAML4R implementation isn't quite complete.
still looking into it. on the bright side, ONI will improve as YAML4R
improves.

interesting to note though, i tested ONI using the standard ruby Marshal
module in place of YAML. though my test was quite limited, YAML proved
more capable!
