this is great!  Should we take the next few weeks in preparing what we'd
like to see in a C++ API?  Plus I need a little time to become more
familiar with current code base.  As a note I was wondering what would be
the advantages/disadvantages of *not* using the c interface but writing
the connection/parse routines directly in the C++ classes?  i.e. get away
from having just wrapper classes.  On the plus side, I think we gain in
flexibility in design and implementation.  On the negative side, we may be
re-inventing the wheel, although I am partial to proceeding in a complete
rewrite.
 
Cheers,

Randy
