Yes, it is the way to move forward.  Doing these things anywhere else 
just causes the frustration demonstrated by this thread.  We end up 
with one way to code the data selections, table creations, etc within 
everything but the Drupal SQL [1] abstraction engine.  Most of it is 
already taken care of, we just need to formalize, tweak (read patch) 
and document.
