I would add that SOCI would still have to handle raw string for SQL,
because there are things that are specific to one database and cannot
even be expressed in another DBMS. And we often need them. It's bad to
say to someone "you have to stuck to the lowest common denominator" if
he only uses one DBMS.

So, you would have two different syntax for the same library... quite
strange. Better to split it in 2 differents lib parts like this I
