What I'm actually doing is breaking out core "sql-based" code which uses
abstract connection, statement, result and result-row objects.  I'll
then use this to create a gda backend, to test the concept (and code)
and then a dbi backend.  For the gda backend, this ends up being a split
and restructure of the current code.  For the dbi backend, this means
reimplementing connection/statement/result/result-row in terms of dbi.
You could create sql-dev if you want it to be in a more appropriately
named branch.  As long as I'm isolated from everyone else, I don't care.
