  Hierarchical SQL
Subject:   Same old non-solution

Your summary should be reworded and placed at the beginning of the article:

"Neither the adjaceny list model, path enumeration, nor nested sets scale if your heirarchy is deep and/or wide, or if you must insert/update frequently. Nevertheless, presented here is the same old non-solution to your real world problems."

I'd be interested in any future article that describes how to handle heirarchies in interesting, real world data.
