Sorry to reply to this message twice, but I finished looking through the
SOCI documentation. It looks really good. I thought I'd show a sample
of my serialization DSEL just for contrast:

  struct job { int type, double rate };

  struct employee {
    int id,
    string name
    vector<job> jobs;

  serializer<employee> emp_serializer =
         //'*' means key field
       *field("id") = &employee::id,

       field("name") = &employee::name,

       table("job") [

            //'-' means dependent field
          field("type") = &job::type,
          field("rate") = &job::rate
       = &employee::jobs

  vector<employee> emps
    = s.load<vector<employee> >(database, "SELECT * FROM employee");

  ...., emps);

This small example shows how to serialize two simple structures where
one is contained by the other.

I don't know if that looks attractive to anyone but I thought it might
spark some discussion at least.
