Subject: DBI (was : [Caml-list] sybase interface?)
Hi everybody,

A while ago, it was said on this list that a common database interface
(à la Perl DBI) would be nice.  Is there any progress in that
direction?  If dynamic selection of the database is not needed,
agreeing on a minimal API (that must cover all usual needs) is enough.
Otherwise, one must define a basic set of facilities that each basic
database interface (perl DBD) must provide and use dynamic loading to
a common DBI module.  So, in my opinion, the first thing to do is any
case is

  agree on a general database interface.

Are there people interested on this list?  Personally I don't have
much time to contribute but as I will be soon in need of using DB, I
am willing to make an effort.
