The library looks very nice, and I might spend more time with it in the
near future.
I have one main question: what, if any, are the facilities of SOCI to
hide database-specific details, or how could the current design
accommodate such facilities?
For example, if I were to write a MySQL backend, there are several
differences in regards to datatypes from Oracle and the relatively easy
portable PostgreSQL.
