It's pretty easy to write a function to turn a query into an array like that. Depending on the amount of data you're dealing with it may or may not be a good idea to get it all into one variable like that. The reason why revdb doesn't have an option like that is probably because multi-dimensional arrays aren't supported by the externals sdk... at least not the one revdb is written in. The new one does although I haven't played with it as it's only been un-#ifdef'ed out recently.
