Thank you! I don't like macros either - in this case they save a lot of
boilerplate. The syntax looks a little worse if you write col<x,y>() or
column<x>(y), but it actually works as well. Making macros optional
would be a good idea.

In terms of a real database, that is on future work but I see that as a
large project and RML is currently aimed at managing in-memory
containers. RML can motivate the interface for access to a real DB
backend, but I'm not planning to do that at the moment.
