That's funny! I would like it from the opposite direction. I use SQLite
but would really like to use SQLite++. Maybe this author could hurry up
and get this added to boost. Then someone else could build the ACID,
relational and SQL projects on top of this one. One small step for man.
One leap for the C++ community. C has SQLite and Java has JavaDB. As a
devout C++ programmer, I am starting to feel left out.
