i've come to be quite an advocate of TAPI's the more applications i've had to maintain
TAPI's generated by tools are of course very rudimentary -- but as you fold in appropriate business rules, having a single procedure that maintains a table greatly simplifies maintenance and development -- and debugging. on many projects that i've been called in on to support/maintain/enhance i've had to spend most of my time searching code to find out what procedures are accessing a certain table. if it's all in a single package, you've got a nice clean structure to work with.
