Hi Stephen,

Thanks for this but, as with Karsten's suggestion, I don't think I could
get away with it in my case, mainly because of the size of my
DBMS-specific code (quince_sqlite and quince_postgresql), and the size
of the interface between it and the core code (quince). The
DBMS-specific code includes everything about the representation of basic
types, the dialectal differences in SQL, the mechanics of sending
commands "down the wire", interpreting the DBMS's response, and (in the
case of quince_postgresql) buffering output.
