/** Holds the ZenListBase abstract */
 * Provides common methods for ZenList implementations. Extending classes
 * are required to implement the following:
 * <ul>
 *   <li><b>getSourceTable()</b> - the db table used by this list type
 *   <li><b>getIdCol()</b> - the primary key column in the table
 *   <li><b>$this->_dataType</b> - the type of object stored in list, such as ZenTicket
 *   <li><b>listFields()</b> - returns a list of valid db columns for this data type
 *   <li><b>columnType()</b> - returns the db column type for the field specified
 * </ul>
 * Extending classes may choose to override any other public method in this class
 * as needed, though mostly it will just work with the above in place.
 * @abstract
