It really does.  One cautionary note, from experience, is that the
ORMs can sometimes make inefficient use of the database.  It's easy to
write code that results in many trips to the database when writing the
SQL by hand might be a single query.

I'm currently in the process of going back over an application and
reducing the number of hits on the database for each request.
