If you read the code, you will find that I do nothing more then this. I do not 
call this "noise".

IMO this is all about "shortcuts",

If Drupal "forces" us to write: 
$result = db_query('something');
while ($data = db_fetch_array($result) {
    $return[$data['some_key']] = $data;
twenty times. 

Then IMO Drupal Does a very Bad Job.

That is all. I presented a solution to an itch that itches me. Nothing more 
nothing less. Feel free to call it "a memory drain".

But also feel free to call it "usefull".

And above all:These endless and *extremely* annoying discussions are the one 
and only reason this is not a patch for core but a helper function in the 
herlpers module. And yes, please contribute to that. the only thing id like 
to see is sone "patch history" to make sure we dont end up with a complete 
crappy helper module.
