I would agree with Martijn that both features are important. It is like arguing if air
conditioning is more important than automatic gearbox when you buy a car. They are both
useful but which one you go for depends on where and how you drive the car. Personally, I
would have both and also leather seats and cruise control...
It may make an interesting hobby to build your own car but I hate reinventing the wheel.

because stored procs they can be implemented in the front end application.
Then they wouldn't be Stored Procedures anymore would they :-)

Both are very much alike - the difference is direct
calling compared to triggered calling. Anyway, the
language is the same.
IMO, they could/should be implemented both in 5.0
