This seems like the correct way to go.

I'm in favor of committing this work.  A SQL API seems like a worthwhile 
addition to apr-util, given the number of apache modules (and other 
applications) that make use of SQL databases and the fact that we 
already include an equivalent abstraction layer for the various DBMs.  I 
think there are improvements that can still be made, but it seems like a 
great start, and further work can be more easily done once it's in the tree.
