I'm trying to solve or at least learn more about this problem.

I have a problem that pretty much boils down to this:

a = [1, 2, 3]
b = [1.1, 2.2, 3.3]

# BEGIN GROSS SOLUTION:  avert your eyes!
results = [ ]
a.each do |i|
 b.each do |j|

ActiveRepository Strawman
# MOTIVATION: As rails apps are growing, people are noticing the drawbacks
# of the ActiveRecord pattern. Several apps I have seen, and several
# developers I have spoken to are looking towards other patterns for object
# persistence. The major drawback with ActiveRecord is that the notion
# of the domain object is conflated with what it means to store/retrieve
# it in any given format (like sql, json, key/value, etc).
# This is an attempt to codify the Repository pattern in a way that would
# feel comfortable to beginner and seasoned Ruby developers alike.
