Well, sort of. It's actually an mxODBC-mxODBC bridge making use of
the higher level interface we have in mxODBC (more available information
means less network traffic :-).

Ideally it should then be possible to separate the ODBC driver
installation from the application using the mxODBC interface,e.g.
you can have the mxODBC application running on Linux, talking to the
Excel ODBC driver on a Windows box, or the MS SQL ODBC driver on
the MS SQL Server machine. That should get rid off the problems
you sometimes have in finding suitable ODBC drivers for the
platform running the application.
