The PostgreSQL driver, in unixODBC, is a direct descendent of Byrons
driver. I took the driver,  made it compile on UNIX again, then added a few
fixs to make it work in unixODBC and with StarOffice 5.0. I think other
enhancements were made to it since then (about a year ago).

The intention was to merge the changes back into Byrons stuff but that has not
happened (that I am aware of).

It would be great if this driver could be common and even better if any common
driver was to be based upon unixODBC (i.e. its odbcinst etc).

Peter

NOTE: There is no reason, that I am aware of, why a common driver would not be
able to work on unix with unixODBC and on MS'isms without change to the code
(providing some care was taken).
