I've got one that I started some time ago, built on Ct-Lib.  Not all
datatypes are well supported, but array binding works.  I was working
from the guts out, and wanted to get array binding early on.

Work stopped when I started on a Java / Sybase project.

I can share code with you, if you're interested.  I'd love to see
something come of this work.
