Ok, I have another forwarded email from Maciej...

The important thing to note about the interface is that the overloaded
operators (this is the controversial part) are only syntax sugar over the more
traditional interface, so that this:

int i;
sql << "select ...", into(i);

is really just a thin wrapper over this:

int i;
Statement st(sql);
st.prepare("select ...");;

In other words, SOCI does not force anybody to use the most convenient
interface ever invented and always provides the less convenient
alternatives. ;-)
