Innova totally broke the servlet when moving queries from the tcl file to a new xql file as part of the port to oracle effort. These changes were committed WITHOUT TESTING and it took me HOURS TO FIND THE PROBLEMS, some of which were easy to fix, some not. At the "some not" point, I decided to just remove Innova's work because CHANGES NEED TO BE TESTED BEFORE BEING COMMITTED. Innova can continue their work and commit after they've tested it.
Hint: When there are several dynamic queries built up in a tcl string named "todo" then executed as "db_dml todo $todo" you can NOT replace all of these with one static query in the query file named "todo".
