That's a huge amount of work, and you have to redo it for each DB
engine. (Rather you than me is what I'm saying :-)

If you're interested in my take on "DBI" have a look at the mod_caml
CVS, eg:

http://savannah.nongnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/modcaml/modcaml/dbi.mli?rev=1.2&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup
http://savannah.nongnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/modcaml/modcaml/dbi_postgres.ml?rev=1.2&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

There's a PostgreSQL implementation of the API which mostly works.

I'm afraid you may be disappointed that it doesn't do anything fancy
with printf or camlp4 :-)

Rich.
