Great.  My main concern is with compiler portability.  I don't have access
to a lot of compilers or platforms right now, and I'm sure my code will 
break on various compilers depending on how much of the C++ standard they
support.  

One of my design parameters was to just require the support I needed and 
not bother too much with backward compilers.  I can see that could be a 
problem when integrating into the source tree; I don't expect to be able
to kludge around all compiler shortfalls.  Assuming this code is 
integrated, is not having libpqxx available on all platforms that
PostgreSQL runs on acceptable?  Or does it become acceptable when there
is good reason to suppose that the remaining platforms can be supported
later on as their compilers improve?
