Mateusz and I exchanged a few mails. The consensus is that it is a very
good idea and we want to do it. The main issue is time. We just don't
have enough of it.
So if you (or others) have time on your hands and are interest in this
topic, why not write a SOCI connector for sqlpp11? A first version could
probably be written without touching either sqlpp11 or SOCI.
