Indirection through eval

So I still want to find a way to deal with type abstraction in a
relational database.  There has to be a clever way...

Problem: I have a bunch of tables that contain "dynamically typed"
where a 'type' column contains a symbolic foreign type key referencing
a table of types, and a value which is just a string.
