With all that abstraction layers around here I'm already wondering if 
performance might be a thing of the past.
I was always a fan of those abstraction ideas like ORM or JSR-170, but 
I've never seen anyone commenting on how it compares to the classic 
SQL-driven DB-access.

I once looked at PEAR:MDB2 which has some nice ideas, but AFAIK it's not 
that stable yet.
Another basis for the PHPCR could also be this Propel/Creole stuff, but 
I never used that and I really doubt it could compete in performance 
with any of the above.
