I expect a more versatile db library to rely on underlying low-level
backends such as this one, so i tend to disagree here: trying to handle
multiple database here will greatly increase complexity with few
additional value for the user: differences in SQL dialects and
supported types, for example, will anyway prevent any simple backend
switch for the user.

Having a common shared design for the different backends, however, will
indeed be useful in building a higher level db abstraction, though (not
sure if it was your point).
