This subject has been discussed several times, then BoostCon'09 spawned
initiative called std::rdb. Jeff Garland led workshop [1] Library in
Week 2009 to
discuss the std::rdb propsals, here are materials std::rdb (.tgz package) [2]
Also, std_rdb mailing list was created to discuss the std::rdb proposal(s) [3],
but it hasn't seen activity for two years now.

SOCI is alive, we've just moved the project to GitHub [4].

Someone has had an idea to implement SOCI backend for it
(SOCI is not tightly bound to SQL, with some development it could accommodate
NoSQL/JSON based queries too)
