The largest problem I see to testing SQL database store/retrieve is that to
be confident in your test results you would have to actually execute SQL,
and standardized though it may be, different implementations have many
different, incompatible, extensions.  Perhaps if you constrain your SQL
sufficiently you can use Gadfly or sqlite as a test driver, but I suspect
that would either constraint your SQL too much or not provide very complete
coverage.
