3 hours of procrastination on a 5 minute fix (Well, at least I got my laundry folded...)

The bug in SQLObject was just a missing '+' character, it was doing:
sql = ';\n'+join_sql

instead of:

Where'd that three hours go? (So much for buying my interest with smoothies...)

The version I'm looking at right now is less generic than the envisioned one; that's just ...
