That's basically what I do.  http://gist.github.com/82981 shows one I
wrote a couple days ago.  I yield each object because there are like
400k records and I can't keep them in memory.  Might be a little nicer
to yield the params hash and let the caller build the object, but I
don't need that flexibility at this point.
