But wouldn't that duplicate work?

For instance, SOCI has an Oracle backend. If sqlpp uses SOCI as a backend,
it would have support for Oracle, and all other RDBMs for that matter.

But if sqlpp has a other connectors bypassing SOCI, then what is the
advantage? Would sqlpp have direct Oracle connectors besides SOCI's?

If so, I begin to question the usefulness of integrating sqlpp with SOCI.
