Re: object dating

Linda Polin scribbles :

If you want to implement it, I can think right now of a couple of
ways :

1) have creation and edit operations add a note to the log 
 Good : secure
 Bad  : bloats the log and forces you to keep _all_ the logs

2) add a couple of properties on the root class, such as 
 .created and .modified (this could be a list) and have all the
 creation and edit operations write on them
 Good : tidy, in-db,easy to inspect
 Bad  : bloats the database

Hope this helps, Walter
