	I would argue that creating a less ambiguous DB API would prevent
people from having to create such abstractions in the first place.  I
don't really understand the point of a DB API that requires another layer
of abstraction before a programmer can begin to use it.  The abstract
interface maintainer must be aware of every driver that gets written and
write custom code to deal with it, and then where are you?
