Is there any interest in describing how parts of PEAK relate to the
patterns Fowler describes in
_Patterns_of_Enterprise_Application_Architecture_ on the devcenter
wiki?  There is a start to this as Fowler's book is mentioned on the
wiki, but a more explicit statement of how various parts of PEAK fit
into the patterns he describes would really be helpful.  For example,
PEAK Data Managers seem to correspond most closely to the data source
architectural pattern that Fowler calls Data Mapper.  (If this is
correct, the fact that the initials match is a happy circumstance.)
