It's an interesting point. I guess the downside of a limited interface
might be that users could end up preferring to use an enhanced version of
the library instead.

I can see that ideally the API of Boost.SQL would be as close as
possible to the API of std::sql. But do you think it also might be
reasonable to have Boost.SQL potentially be a superset of std::sql?
