I would love to use stored procedures and triggers in WP.  The thought
of doing SQL at all inline is less than ideal.  I should be able to
invoke a stored procedure.

Yes, even though this has been talked about before but for good
reason.  Like my new plugin which uses SimpleXML which is much easier
than the PHP4 way of parsing XML.  I was in Barnes and Noble and saw a
book for PHP6!  Now, we're really lagging behind.
