	I warned you that the 16/32 bit issue was a powder keg...  The
trouble I believe is that, even under NT/95, if you are running 16 bit
apps they need a 16 bit ODBC driver.  And dropping support for 16 bit
machines is only going to cause grief.

	David...  Your company did a bang up job on fixing the 32 bit
support.  That can't be denied.  We just need to figure out how to mesh
the support for 16 bit into it.
