Someone last month posted on the Sequel mailing list that they had a database with thousands of tables with the same schema.

Using ActiveRecord, they had to use metaprogramming to create thousands of model classes, one per table.

With Sequel, they could access the tables directly, which made their work a lot easier.

I certainly don't advocate that type of database design, but it does show that Sequel handles degenerate cases more easily.
