This thread's subject says "OO programming proponents". Nobody called you one.
I'm fine with discussing physical implementation issues. I don't see how one can realize a theory without that. There's some from me and others in this group's archives about it but I wish there were more. However, I don't see much potential in memory controllers since the kind mentioned have no programming interface that a dbms implementer could get his or her hands on.
