Try your code in a standalone application before moving on.  I create 
interfaces from database information in my applications and while it 
looks very clunky in the IDE (you can see all of the objects being 
created) it is perfectly clean in the standalone.  Rev is actually very 
fast and creating interfaces on the fly.
