That's cool. Thank you.

It would appear that I am working on something similar (though closer to
the MYSQL++ model). I am working on a wrapper over ODBC in this vein.

I invite again anyone to send me private mail if this discussion gets
off topic boost wise.

1- We *need* a db layer in boost
2- I *need* to make some modifications in some existing code for a
project I am working on- this may or may not be appropriate for boost-
i.e. if I can do this and also somehow help a boost db along- then great
