Can you list them, please?

Having based OLE DB on libpq, it would be nice to find that instead of 
working hard to achieve some stuff via different SQL queries, that I can 
just extend libpq to support easier handling.

In other words, I may find that it is easier to implement certain stuff 
in libpq rather than OLE DB. ODBC may be in the same position. This way, 
everybody win.
