Basically I'd like to be able to do this...
class Film < ActiveRecord::Base
class SomeTransient < Film
class SomeOtherTransient < Film
Then do this:
film = SomeTransient.find_by_title("some film title")

Clearly I could do all my stuff directly in the Film class but that
would get messy since the film instances are going to be taking on many
different personalities (lots of different derived attributes for
I'm not sure why this seems to be so difficult?
Thanks in advance!
