The code for the patch was lost in cyberspace. Someone still had the code 
still on his computer and passed it on to Markus. So it was inserted into the 
code base on a branch, which can be found in the SVN dump.

If someone would feel the urge of starting to work on the ODBCed Catacomb, 
that would be a good starting point. Unfortunately it would've meant lots of 
work to get it up to the current state, and it was not very "developer 
friendly" (uses unbelievable amounts of compiler macros instead of "real" 
code), so we decided against that version in favor of the MySQL-only version.

At least the code is not lost anymore, but accessible for futher generations 
of young and enthusiastic DB developers.
