It has not been "officially" released yet, but version made a 
major move in that direction. It has purged itself from ugly debug 
asserts and message boxes. In addition to that, it is being actively 
maintained, and so I'm hoping for a proper release soon.

OLE (well, DCOM really) allows a threading solution for the lazy (for 
the time being, that's us). The server runs (by default) in a single 
thread, and all other threads use a proxy to call it. Right now we are 
too focused on getting this version functionally complete to start 
worrying about this. As OLE DB is generally a faster concept anyways, 
I'm hoping this won't be too much of a problem.

Work on getting multi threading into the provider cannot start until I 
understand libpq's thread safety.
