Yep, it's a really good idea, but it would be over my head at the moment. :(

One of the things that could *potentially* be tricky is that adding database support can be database dependent unless using a database abstraction layer (i.e. ODBC or JDBC).

Am guessing that Donna's code is probably specific to DB2, but it might make for a decent start point if people are interested. I could *assist* with pointer for PostgreSQL specific stuff if needed, but it's been a while since I've been a voodoo coder.

Does any of this sound helpful?
