I haven't had any success figuring out why Borland products can't write
blobs.  Maybe you could send me logfiles of the problems (both sql.log
and psqlodbc.log).

I don't see any real need to support ODBC 3.0.  This would be quite an
involved project for very little gain as far as I can tell.  The driver
manager seems to do a good job of down converting the 3.0 calls to
2.0.   Is there something specific in 3.0 that you need or something?

As for scrollable cursors, "static" scrollable cursors are already
supported.   If you want positioned update/delete, the driver can work
with the odbc cursor library to achieve that.  As for dynamic or keyset
cursors, I had plans to implement a mixed keyset cursor (similar to what
the Jet engine does), but time is a problem.
