The doctrine extension was more of an experiment for me that we started 
on the dev days two years ago.
Its status is: It's working but hasn't been updated for *gosh* 490 
days.. That means, the library is outdated and the adapters and hooks 
probably need an overhaul - I haven't really followed doctrine 
development lately.

I have used tx_doctrine for a couple of extensions I wrote, but it 
didn't provide the desired incentive for me - lacking a proper MVC 
framework. With extbase & FLOW3 it might be a different thing.

The extension comes with a little helper class that generates the models 
from TCA and supports crdate, tstamp, "enable fields" and l18n but no 
workspaces as far as I remember.

I really like the doctrine templates, they integrate transparently. E.g. 
if "enable fields" are active, doctrine would take care of deleted, 
hidden, start- & endtime query parts as long as you don't have them in 
your where-part already. So it would still be possible to fetch deleted 
objects for example.
