Magento and CRUD

Magento definitely has a lot of of the Read part of CRUD down. but what about Create, Update and Delete?

I haven’t seen many code snippets of updating the database on the forums, except for a few running custom SQL commands. (Admittedly I I only looked for such code in the Magento modules for a little while - came up with only a little here and there)

This would be useful for instance if we wanted to update some data to be used for the Product Upsells dynamically (perhaps every time a product was purchased or something like that)

There seems to be a lot of code for this in the Model area of the Install Module

Perhaps in this aspect it would be more handy to check out the Zend framework for database connections…
