Right. That's the whole idea of what we created: Let the compiler check
as much as possible if our code is correct. This applies to insert
statements, to where expressions, to retrieved values (the compiler
knows which value (name, type) is returned in each column), etc.

Earlier on, I tried to avoid database interaction where possible, but
these days, with the compiler telling me most of the things I could do
wrong, database programming is fun :-)
