Myself and three other programers have been arguing (for well over an hour)
about naming the primary key in a mysql database table.
I was wondering what other people name it.
The argument is to name it "id" or another name like "client_id".
I like client_id because then the primary key name matches the foreign key
in another table.
My coworker likes just the name id because then he can have a base class
that returns the value of the id column of that table.
