Thanks for doing this - personally I welcome the discussion of these
interface details, and I am open to considering the issues you are
raising. I've never thought that a boostified version of SOCI would
go through with exactly the interface it has today. There might be
a scenario in which standalone SOCI lives on alongside its decendent
boost.SQL, with a slightly different interface. However, we need
to get Maciej's thoughts on these issues when he comes back online.
