I hate being stuck in a bad framework.
What's the framework and what's bad about it?
Mostly its annoying that I don't know it, and have only so many hours to do this work. But really its annoying because of the Forms. Rose::HTML::Forms. Once you are hitting more than one table with a form, and its not just onene CRUD, suddenly the OO form setup is a MAJOR liability, instead of helping out.
Forms belong in templates. Mapping them to objects to the DB is only useful if you don't do much across tables.
I believe this is why people complain about RAILS, "Its easy until you do something it doesn't do for you." Cross-table stuff is just hard. I'm having to dig way deep in the framework - and because i don't know it that well, that means my brain is about to pop chasing up sub-class chains.
