Ah ok. This sounds promising in the aspect of porting to
an "OS" ;)) Will you make it modular in a way porting
is possible? Will it be multithreaded? I've seen there
is native support for postgresql also as win32 libs, so
there should be no need to use ODBC in all circumstances
(For example to catch messages like psql does)
