As someone who has used odbc, jdbc, dbtools, sqlapi, otl, occi, etc.,
this looks very nice to me. Further, the relative simplicity suggests
it would be straightforward to implement for the leading databases.

C++ really lacks a free, uniform, portable solution for rdbms access.
Having like this library in boost would be *huge*, IMHO.

One way to proceed might be to submit this a boost::db, while
acknowledging that more sophisticated bells and whistles can
be submitted separately later, either as enhancements to the
base boost::db or as separate (but dependent) libraries.
