Hi Rodrigo,

Or even, how about C++14-only libraries?
By the time the library will be ready for review, it might very well be
based on C++14.

If someone writes an sqlpp11-connector for SOCI, the connector will
depend on both SOCI and sqlpp11. But neither sqlpp11 nor SOCI will
depend on the connector or each other. That is one of the beauties of
the approach :-)
