Table and Query Classes good or unnecessary?

I respectfully disagree.
While I have gotten used to these crazy indentation rules and can attest
that the right IDE has made life a lot easier, I still hate this part
with a vengeance. In no way do I find it makes my code more readable and
especially with larger decision trees it is so friggen hard to figure
out the flow of your application. Give me curly brackets any day over this.
That said, you do get used to it, and with the right IDE it isn’t any
huge hurdle, but that it requires a specialized IDE for you to make
sense of the flow of your own code because hidden characters can easily
break things speaks volumes to me. I’ve learned to live with it, but I
will never like it.
