I'm switching to PHP from Perl and really like the way Class::DBI works. What's the best way to do ORM w/ a MySQL database in PHP?

Thanks!

There is a project called Doctrine which provides ORM using PDO as the database abstraction layer

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctrine_%28PHP%29

http://www.doctrine-project.org/

I've never use it myself, but I've been tempted. If I had no legacy code issues and was starting from scratch then I would look at it more seriously.
