I hope some PostSQL (and indeed other SQL database(s)) aficionados will take on this (and other) task(s).

Ultimately, some formal tests using Boost.Test (or similar) will be needed to give confidence in the portability of the infrastructure.

Meanwhile this looks convincing (to a non-expert) - but how about experts?

If you know someone (probably not on the Boost lists) who might have the expertise to take this on, then please forward this challenge to them.

The original proposal was
"writing an ASIO-based client for MySQL, trying to mimic what Beast is to HTTP. It currently supports SQL queries and prepared statements.
