AW: [Catacomb] ODBC patch (was Re: Subversion dump of the repository)

That's quit an interesting idea. I think i could have many advantages, Mainly the installation would be much more easy because the installation of unix-odbc or iodbc could be a pain in the ass on some systems and mod_dbd is one of the standard modules.

Apache 2.2 has a mod_dbd module that allows you to plugin a driver
specific to a database.  Maybe odbc would not be necessary if catacomb
were to be ported to use mod_dbd?
