I've just started work on a DBI conformant ct-lib (as opposed to db-lib) 
module.   A db-lib but non-DBI module already exists, thanks to Ted.  I'm 
working on the ct-lib version because I would like to use linux with 
Sybase, and sybase only seems to provide ct-lib for linux (in aout 
format, yecchh!).

I intend to support bulk loading.  Any help, advice, collaboration or 
anything else people would like to contribute will appreciated.
