Yes, sorry, user=person extending Catacomb, not end-user.

The idea was to make it so that we can accommodate multiple repository
interface modules with the same architecture, which implies accommodating a
larger user base than can be supplied by any one access method.

I think the reply is more one of, "thank you *very* much for the code
contribution" and we'd like to integrate this code into Catacomb, but using
an architecture that accommodates both standard (ODBC) and database-specific
(MySQL, Oracle, DB, etc.) access methods. I'm also open to suggestions of
how to integrate the ODBC code into Catacomb right now, perhaps by using
appropriate #ifdefs?
