+1, for all the reasons discussed in this thread. I was weirded out
when I saw non-DB-proxy work being put into the same service. One
additional reason that hasn't been discussed is security : the more
complex the code in the 'actually connects to the DB', the greater the
risk of someone getting direct access that shouldn't via a code bug.
