Yes, I would certainly be willing to maintain it!   I have been working a lot
with the driver on my own time.  Our customers (Insight) only needed it to do so
much, so I am now mostly working on the driver on my own time.  I would like to
keep this driver working well, adding new enhancements and functionality
(including a 16 bit version eventually), and of course, fixing any problems that

BTW, I have gotten at least 4 patches from people (new features and bug fixes)
and have put them in.  So, people are contributing.

So, just give me some instruction on what to do with the repository, etc.  Maybe
we could even do something with the divergent odbc driver websites too.  That
would also be on my own time.
