You know you have my vote! :-)

I'll retract my previous private statement about compatibility with Oracle
being important.  After thinking about it some more I'd much rather have a
superiour free product than compatiblility with a comercial product.

The only issue I can forsee is when virtual memory is exhausted, would
this require additional error code defined that would violate some sql
standard?  And would a NULL pointer on return siginfy a null column value
in the table or a failed malloc?
