If people think that the mod_caml DBI approach is the right one (and
it may not be, although it certainly Works For Us), then I could spin
this off into a separate package to make it easier to install.

This is dbi.mli:

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

This is dbi_postgres.mli, which is the driver we use all the time in
production at Merjis, hence the most stable / developed:

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

This is the driver for Perl DBDs:

http://savannah.nongnu.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs/modcaml/modcaml/dbi_perl.mli?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/vnd.viewcvs-markup

The interface is designed to make it quick to access databases, in the
sense that you write the minimum code necessary.  It's not type safe,
in the sense that if you write garbage SQL, it won't be detected until
runtime.  Alex Baretta is, I believe, pursuing an alternative approach
using Camlp4 which is supposed to be type safe.

Rich.
