I just want to have my cake and ice cream... 

I'd like to take advantage of all the RAD stuff provided by CCK & Views,
set up my site and content types, and views.... Down the road we start
getting bigger... We start getting 200-300K hits an hour... I hit the
convert to module button, and have a module that provides the behavior
of my defined views and content types, with less abstraction, hopefull
less time in code as a result...

Down the road we want to add a new attribute to content type z, so we
revert the site to a CCK/Views site... (definitions should still be
stored, just need to back port all my data.) I update my content
definitions and views, recompile my module and voila.. 

Its a strange fantasy I know...
