I agree with you here. The basic SQL database structure is simple. It
should be made easier then most vendors' interfaces.

Yes. You've uncovered my hidden agenda with guile having a database
interface: to create libraries of queries, commands, etc. I want
templates for common tasks, functions that are associated with each other,
so instead of having to write sql you'd have a library of functions that
work on databases in general, which can be optimized for certian
databases, and which provide the functions to query a database in
scheme... or better yet from any language that you've linked libguile
I'd really like to have something like nextstep's (or whatever it's
called now) database interface tool. But I'd like to be able to link it
to any language.
