Well, that part hadn't actually changed from the original API. ResultSet 
was exactly as originally specced. I just checked in a change, though, 
that changes the ResultSet API to have the data just be an array of 
objects, based on feedback from the Gears team. It could be implemented in 
the background more efficiently than it seems, or it could just be 
implemented by getting all the data and sticking it into an object per row 
in one potentially big array upfront.
