Now that the DB API module for SAP DB nears completition:
are there any features which weren't put into the spec because it was deemed
too complex, but which several drivers implement anyway, possibly in a
similar way?

- configurable automatic translation of SQL values to Python values
depending on the type (especially for Date, Time and Timestamp)
- catalog information
- handling of Blobs/Clobs
